Central Saint Martins Fashion graduate Amélie Beluze created a conceptual collection comprised of delicate knitwear garments. Her debut MA collection was premiered in 1Granary magazine.
"I think some collections are not showing women in a respectful way. They seem to feel powerless and full of anger. I think there is something lacking in the fashion world today,” shares her thoughts Amélie.
That was a movie 'Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce' by the Belgian experimental filmmaker Chantal Akerman that inspired Amélie to start her own fashion investigations.
Stunned by the scene of Jeanne changing the clothes, she decided to start developing her collection around this intriguing concept. All the silhouettes from the collection are on the verge of being undone. The loose knitted sweater hanging largely over the model’s shoulder, the buttons or wide opened jacket, barely holding onto the body with the elastic straps represent the act of getting dressed and undressed. Although, the concept may make the one think the other way, the whole collection presents a woman in an extremely delicate way featuring French sensuality. Careful selection of materials in neutral colors creates a sensitive metaphor to describe an effortless attraction and fragility.
