A night with the Viennese University of Applied Art
this week I received a spontaneous invitation by message and 4 hours after I was in the Anker Brot Fabrik for the Die Angewandte Wien, the fashion show of the University of Applied Arts of Vienna 2018.
I didn’t know what to expect as I did not had a chance to think about it. I went there alone and already among the crowd waiting outside I could feel that most of people were creative and artist type!
At 20:30 the doors opened and the show , or should i say the shows started simultaneously. 3 stages, one group of model coming from each side and heading to the center. The time to check out the first designs I went running toward the other sides, but I can tell you… it is pretty hard to take pictures from a model on the catwalk with a simple smartphone! They are suuuuper fast! Gosh, in high heels I could barrely follow!
It started with let’s say an very, very unusual style. A style that you can only imagine wearing on stage as a performer, definitely not an 8-17h dresscode. Even though I have to admit that at first I was pretty doubtful, at the end of the evening i consider some part of what i saw as a statement.
Dear designers, this message is for you, if you don’t know what to do with these adorable red shoes or clothes, I’m wearing M and I am a 39!
I came back home fueled by lot of energy and smiling at the excentric and pure creativity that I was lucky to see this night.
Thank you designers of Vienna and the world, to not limit your creativity for profit and let your imagination run free!
