Israeli-born fashion designer Roni Ilan graduated from Central Saint Martins and keeps on exploring concepts surrounding ’normalisation’ in the fashion design.
Presented below is a Collection for Autumn/Winter ' 17, an outcome of Roni’s examination of „the homogeneity of an individual within the family unit”, as describes Ross Aston. The designer questions how clothes are used to express an idea of self describing with a help of garments. She raises the question: „Do you feel open in what you wear or do you feel closed?”
„Jarring with the delicate balance that forms our personalities, Ilan fixed on the process of hand-me-downs and borrowed garments that ravel through familiar relations. A material connection form old to young or sibling to sibling, these inherited clothes not only imbue a part of the identity of the former owner onto the next, but also impose their physical attributes simply trough clothing size and the piece’s wear and tear. Too big, too small, worn-in, over-washed and reused and modified for the new wearer”, describes the collection Ross Aston.
