David Koma Show - Women's Collection Autumn/Winter 2018/19 in London (with interview)

Designer: David KomaInspiration: The designer chose the St George’s Church in Bloomsbury London, a place he often visited as a student, as the location for his show. Everything is inspired by Edward Curtis, who photographed Native American peoples in the 19th Century. Collection: graphic lines and cuts which are dear to the designer, take on a new dimension, with puff-ball skirts and fringing made from different materials. Different leathers and suedes are used on the same piece creating different, brightening effects. David Koma introduces real feathers or Swarovski crystals, whilst metallic eyelets add a rock spirit to the collection. To note: the touches of colour, notably the deep red and purple, + the bustier jumpsuits and dresses which exaggerate the top half of the body and the shoulders.Interview with David Koma: I used to study at Central Saint Martin’s, a 3 minute walk’s distance, and I used to come to this church and when we were looking for the venue for this season, I just remembered, and I wanted to go back and have the same feeling that I had when I was in college. It was more based on Edward Curtis’ photography of Native American tribes and that was the starting point of the collection, mixed with the strong DNA of the brand which is minimal, sharp, graphic lines and it was this game between circular, soft shapes with a very, very sharp, high-polished metallic touch to it. We explored the feathered motif, throughout a different section because I felt it was very romantic and poetic and with the movement of the fringing and the panelling of very, very sharp graphic lines, it looked very interesting to me.Music from the show (for use only in context of the show, under cover of the right to information)
