ALICIA NASTENKO – URBAN ARROWS

Spring/Summer 2017 The story I attempted to tell through this collection is the story of my own moods and personal growth in the past years. By using the flexible dynamic lines, curves, 3D shapes and luxury fabrics I tried to create garments that are minimalistic on  the hanger but become alive on the body. They enhance natural curves and show respect for the female form.  I want to think that I managed to design the pieces that embrace the woman femininity and her uncompromising identity.

LAURA LEPRE – BIG IN JAPAN

I was inspired by Japan’s traditional and modern architecture, culture and fashion; their many layers, details and interactive nature. I translated these elements into an interactive, layered and colorful children’s wear collection with self-made and designed textiles combined with traditional Japanese fabrics.

SUZANNE KOP – THE BAVARIAN FAIRYTALE

This Spring/Summer 2017 women collection is about tailored, fitted, handcrafted, detailed fashion. I was fascinated and inspired by the Bavarian traditional clothing (Oktoberfest Munich), history of Bavaria, the vintage fifties period and the trends SS 17. This collection is actually a combination of the Bavarian traditional clothing and the tailored shapes of the fifties period.

BRITT MANSVELD –  BRANDING CAMPAIGN REBECCA MINKHOFF

Final Major Project Branding & Marketing Promotion – Fashion Business (Hons) BA

 

Rebecca Minkoff is highly innovative when it comes to integrating technology within both their products and marketing strategy and was one of the first to recognize the importance of social media as a platform to communicate with their audience. In an early stage the brand asked for feedback on their products on social media platforms in order to understand what worked and what didn’t. However, recent developments within consumer behaviour demonstrate that consumers are demanding for a higher brand engagement and the ability to advise, which are not integrated within the communication models that are currently available. Britt developed a C2B IAC communication model for the brand Rebecca Minkoff. This model will enhance the Rebecca Minkoff business strategy and strengthens the brand promise and philosophy.
