#muse

I have spent seven semesters studying fashion and now I’m finally allowed to show you my bachelor collection. How I came to my topic, I have already described it to you here. My work is not so much about who or what is a good or serious influencer. It’s more about the question of whether influencers can be muses for fashion designers.

The concept of muse dates back to antiquity. The muse was originally something divine that evoked the artistic in man. Later, artists were inspired by inaccessible women and men to creative processes. Why should artists – and fashion designers definitely belong to them in the 21st century – not be inspired by influencers and make them their muses?

I did it the same way for my bachelor collection.

I was inspired by three influencers that I personally admire very much.
They were my muses.

On the Internet, unlike in real life, we have greater control over our self-expression. We ourselves determine the point of view, can repeat many shots and finally reprocess them digitally. The result is an idealized image that is not necessarily the reality.

The influencer does just that.
He uses the power of images, creates parallel worlds and thus influences people. The influence can have many forms, even if a form is highlighted very often. The one in which he influences others to buy things that they otherwise would not have bought. But an influencer can also influence other areas. Areas that have no commercial background. And if they influence the artist in his creative process, then they are, so to speak, his muses.

For me exactly this point is interesting. How does a person present himself, how does he present himself and for what purpose? What does that say about the person?

In my work I have searched for my muses in the digital world. I have almost no direct contact with them. I followed them and took what they gave me through the social networks and their blogs. Without knowing it, they have become the source of my inspiration. Because everything they reveal about themselves, every picture, every caption has an effect.

Jordan Henrion, Henrik Lischke und Mikko Puttonen

In my collection I have combined elements that characterize my muses. The individual looks are not unique to a muse. Much more, it was important to me to combine the influences of the three. Jordan’s sporty elegance, Henrik’s nonchalance and Mikko’s perfect aesthetics. My goal was to design a collection that consists of different parts and offers the possibility to combine wildly. Since all three deconstruct classic men’s fashion in their own way, I laid my foundation here.

I have combined beautiful cool-wool fabrics with jersey fabrics and color accents. Soft silhouettes combine with the elements of classic and traditional menswear and offer one thing above all: freedom of movement. Even if I play with the element of constriction to emphasize body parts, one should never feel constrained in my fashion. So in my selection of fabrics, I paid attention to the fact that I have a variety of flowing fabrics that come to life in the movement.
A new kind of manhood that is not afraid of femininity.

I am very happy about this collection. Not only because this time I did not let myself be steered in a direction that did not suit me. I’m happy with all the things I’ve learned in many ways during the process. Not just craftsmanship but about myself. I know a bit more who and where I want to be in the future.
