Designer Kakopieros explores the artistic, philosophic, spiritual, and scientific realms
By Loose Lips Mag
Known as the ‘Gateway to Global Fashion,’ Vancouver is taking its 29th walk down the runway for the annual Vancouver Fashion Week. Each show takes place at the David Lam Hall, Chinese Cultural Centre, kicking off on March 20 and finishing up on March 26. Previewing clothing lines from the upcoming Fall/Winter 2017-2018 season, Loose Lips is looking forward to these four female designers in particular.
Spanish native Arantxa Morcillo focuses on materials, forms and silhouettes. An obsessive attention to research is essential in her creative process which evolves in rich and intimate collections. After studying in London she worked at Somerset House and interned with Gareth Pugh before setting sail on her own endeavours. You can see her AW17 collection Memories on the Vancouver Fashion Week runway.
Kakopieros delves into the artistic, philosophical, spiritual and scientific questions of the human condition. Her AW17 collection Anne Frank will focus around the pervasive struggles that Anne Frank faced throughout her life, pulling inspiration from themes of politics and confrontation.
