3D architectural software and traditional weaving techniques are mashed up to create the ambiguous and avant-garde Hellen Van Rees Autumn/Winter 2013 collection. The stunning womenswear line was presented during London Fashion week and gained praise for its display of rich textures achieved with the combination of intricately threaded fabrics.
Entitled "Square3 Angle: The transformation", this stunning fashion exhibition explores 3D shapes and figures that are reminiscent of a 1920s silhouette that has been translated for a contemporary consumer. The designer experiments with colorful yarn constructions recovered and recycled from industrial uses.
Holland-based designer Hellen Van Rees is a graduate of the Fashion Design at ArtEz Academy in Arnheim as well as Central Saint Martins in London and has been showcasing her distinct point of view since the launch of her personal label in 2012.
