Material manipulation took centre stage during Zamina Scillasdotter's Stockholm Fashion Week debut
With a background in bespoke tailoring, self-taught Stockholm-based designer Zamina Scillasdotter is one to watch this season. With a focus on carefully handcrafted details and considered fabric choices – aspects that make up the foundation of Scillasdotter’s work – her designs breathe an air of couture in their creation.
Although launched in 2019, her eponymous made-to-measure label makes its debut at Stockholm Fashion Week this season. Her spring/summer 2022 collection ‘Lost Identity’ focused on material manipulation. Crinkled stiff fabric looked like paper, while soft organza fell in sheer pleats as the models walked down the runway. Two dancers in high Perspex heels opened the show, moving their bodies to the rhythm. The textures came in tones of earth and sand - contrasted with a pop of red - while silhouettes remained sculptural and wide-shouldered.
