It was a big day for all the students of the graduating class of ESMOD´s Berlin International Academy of Fashion when presenting their final collection to an international and national audience. Following the motto “Take a walk on the wild side” the graduate show actually started with our favourite offering – Ho Cheol Moon’s uplifting collection entitled “A Fisherman”. The cuts were simply amazing, he kept the colouring very soft/natural and the designs showed a great balance between complicated structures and wearable pieces.
German photographer Stefan Dotter captured the collections inlcuding their atmosphere and talks: “It was quite surprising how many of the young designers decided to work in menswear. After all menswear is much harder to pursue than the womenswear – you gotta keep that in mind when judging the collections. For me personally graduate collections are the most exciting thing within the fashion industry – it’s all about creativity. However there have been three standout collections by Jan-Philipp Gerlach, Ho Cheol Moon and Desiree Uebbing.”
