Liselore Frowijn Spring 2018: Paris Fashion Week

Twenty energetic looks where shown on the gallery’s damier floor where Liselore Frowijn’s daring universe was fully immersed with the upright columns: freedom can be a powerful tool of independence.

FROWIJN took us on a dry archeological journey deep into Mexico, reminding us all of the vibrant country’s overpowering beauty. She referred to the Maya’s ancestral culture and took references from nature, buildings and pyramids for their size and decoration. She used hope as the weapon for creation; the rotatory printed cactus created in collaboration with graphic designer Michiel Schuurman literally symbolizes this hope.

“The collection is a an intensive homage to the country of Mexico. In March this year I went on a research trip there and met many locals who proudly showed me their traditional arts and crafts. My new collection is an ode to freedom generally, and to Mexico specifically, with elements of its cultural history and hopes for a bright future interwoven throughout”

The collection’s motto of hope is to keep Mexicans shinning as they call themselves “People of the Sun”, bringing up a critical reflection on the current threats the country suffers by oppressing not the entire culture, but also blocking its creative instincts.
