My graduate collection focused on a mergence between retro and avant-garde. The project inspires by a story of the Russian revolution in 1917 which is about a collapse of the last Russian’s dynasty, Romanov, and this situation led to the creation of the Soviet Union. During the circumstance, there were dynamic textile and clothing designs happened as an influence of constructivism at the time.

There are two groups of material, the first one is material aims for ultra protection such as felted wools, wool blend and fur, the second group is sheer and fluid fabric such as silk chiffon, organdy, mousseline and silk crepe.

These surface designs could bring a trace of the royal court embellishment; still, it also integrated with avant-garde style. 
From entire of collecting data and research information, the concept of 1917 Russian’s revolution was used and interpreted in order to design my collection. The dynasty’s court dresses were cut and merge with avant-grade; then, mixed with  cutting lines from the constructivist’s work.
