AKKA

Aleksandra Dzakovic (designer of AKKA) is an architect who has recently entered the world of fashion by merging technologies with tradition. She gained her Master degree in architecture at the Bauhaus in Germany, focusing on the obsolescence of contemporary educational system, thus offering a progressive approach towards a more critical reflection and study.

While approaching fashion as a product design, she transmits architectural logic into a design process, mostly by adjusting the construction methods to the available technologies and by using biosynthetic, biodegradable materials.

Elisha Quarman SS22

Recent graduate, Elisha Quarman, showcased her final year project at Fashions Finest LFW event.

Having studied Contour design for 3 years at De Montfort University, Leicester, the only UK university to have this specialisation, she became interested in lingerie and the potential of leather as an intimate material.

The structure and the material of the designs are intended to empower women through lingerie.

Quarman also plays on the conventions of lingerie through incorporating historical Chinese symbols. She says that the figurative symbols she incorporates into the leather material hints at the history of desexualisation of women in China. Collating the contours of lingerie, the fetish material of leather, and a historical context of desexualisation, Quarman subtly challenges the material history of women’s global battle with oversexualisation and desexualisation.
