Trendology: Heidi Ackerman for FAT

As mentioned earlier at the end of the interview with Heidi Ackerman, we will cover her show in FAT. Last night we attended FAT and witnessed the amazing design by Heidi.

As expected, her style is very futuristic, yet the provoking metal headpieces are nothing we have seen.  Working with her favourite knitwear, she embedded abstract pattern that inspired by Russian avant garde movements of the early 20th century.  This collection, she went beyond knitwear, adding leather to her collection.  With the purpose of experimenting with more materials and textures, she made it as sustainable as it could be by using vegetable tanned leather.  As Heidi is obsessed with architecture as well, the cut line of her collection are all strong and structural, creating a very bold statement for the collection.
