On a live stream catwalk performance in Berlin, Tom Van der Borght showed 21 stunning looks from his “7 ways to be TVDB” presenting at Hyères.

Winner of fashion category Grand Prix at the 35th Hyères Festival, Tom opened the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week this year in Berlin, and his show included fourteen new looks as well as seven reworked looks.

Tom continues to develop his powerful tribe through colourful, high impact and creative silhouettes, combining once again High-Tech Bricolage and haute couture savoir faire. His spectacular show was a complete performance created in collaboration with famous French-Spanish dancer, choreographer and director Blanca Li.

The topic of this performance was support within the community, particularly in times of pandemic-induced isolation. The models move along the catwalk as if taking part in a procession. They are met by a group of performers, who take on a variety of forms - from workers with the face of the designer to muscular, fantastical-looking figures of horses. The climax of the show reflects Tom Van der Borght's artistic vision of an inclusive universe.
