@m.zapya


Lovely time of the day everybody! If you reading this you are most likely already at this nice party called Just Magazine. Well, why we all came to this point where we all get together in a print edition that let’s be honest, printed so poorly? “- Where is my sponsorship wtf I’m so ashamed when I think of the print version of myself..” Truly the purpose of art is something unbeknownst at the core and it is all about to please and to release our senses. On the verge of 2020, it feels so right to discard all the excess, grew wings and fly away from all of the holidays’ distractions and finally do something more, something for yourself, to make yourself an ultimate gift of whatever you so desperately desired for so long… So let’s take some time to figure it out and then let’s go for it. If not now then..why the hell is not now? We neglect our inner guidance so much nowadays, but the ability to feel what is right for you, what light’s you up is such a gift and we all can make ourselves this gift to allow finally getting the inner voice. And that is actually the fanciest one, not the Cybertruck preorder. This is what guides us to all the beauty, all the nicest, funniest and inspiring, this is the force of creation and joy, we’d rather appreciate it, then neglect or even hate. Don’t know what to talk with y’all about this time, really, just feel the need to numb the shit-talking, numb the shit mind. My contact list look like the yellow pages I don’t save these niggas names, I remember faces and I ain’t fuck you in a minute, why you still claim me? Bet if he ever hit this pussy he gone still stalk me and if you got a new bitch why you still callin’? And I look better than that hoe that’s why she made you block me I like to show for them haters talkin’ bad about me. Tryin hard to find a flaw, but you still watchin’ Hey! Freak nasty motherfucker kiss with the tongue I don’t wanna fuck the nigga if he ain’t hung he a lotta fun if he eat it night one if he got a lotta funds, I’ma hit it like, «Uh!» money make me cum, tryna get me some lookin at these numbers on my check like uh versace hottie, uh creole mami, huh she gone fuckin’ run but the Stalli giddy up freak, freak, freak nasty go a couple rounds and leave that dick up in the casket I ain’t wanna to take the nigga from you, it just happened you know I ain’t cum boy, if you had to ask me freak, freak, freak nasty lick on my hand, then I put it in his pants get to playing with that cock and make that motherfucker bam! And I walk and I talk like a pimp ‘cause I am pussy wet diamonds on my neck I’m a hot girl, so I make these niggas sweat if you fuckin’ with me, you’re fuckin’ with the best if he say he a dog, I’ma treat him like a pet Jimmy John neck, told him give it to me quick talkin’ like you love me? Nobody Keith Sweat rich bitch pussy, I can take you outta debt rich bitch pussy only come for a check, aah We unluckily could not afford to take a good deep pause before the last final touches for making it solid and clear, but that’s okay, we hope you’ll all agree that fashion today is made on speed only.

e g a s s e

Collections having deadlines, art projects are the same way..? Is it a work or is it a pleasure, how

to eliminate that negatively gleaming aspect of existence and whether at all. This thought came such a hefty one and there is so much to come. Anyways, we hope you’re having a really good time wherever you are right now! This holiday edition including boys and..girls, not so many this time, really special guest and tons of creativity, so if you prepared yourself to this issue to be incredibly great, then multiply expectations by thousands. Stay sexy and don’t get murdered!

TOM GALLE INTERVIEW

I suppose we’re just gonna copy the info from bio on http:// tomgalle.online/ This is not an easy thing to introduce this guy. And it’s truly worth it visiting, by the way. Belgian-born, Berlin-based Tom Galle is the epitome of the contemporary web artist. (NY based now..?) His work is saturated with the very essence of hyper-digital nowness. He has created an online persona that is at once supremely infatuated with and deeply questioning of the profound impact that the internet has had on all of our bodies and brains. Galle creates art that operates on two distinct levels: it is philosophical and political but also instant and accessible, effortlessly walking

26

the line between academic art and internet meme cultures. In this way, his dark humor-laced practice can be seen as a telling indicator of the nature of successful art in the internet (and post-internet) age. - Christian Petersen, ARTsland. Tom has worked for clients such as Nike, Google, Adidas, Toyota, Netflix, MTV and has won numerous industry awards including Cannes Lions, D&AD, Webby, One Show, and more. So impressive, ironical and relevant art you’ll never find elswhere. The quintessence of modern lifestyles and human nature. We’d rather call Tom Galle a guy of the entire decade, not a 2019 olny. God bless the Internet ))


27


28


Hi Tom, we’re finally composed an interview for you! So, how are you? What was on your mind lately? How is everything going? Good! Thanks for asking :) Do you remember your very first art project? Very much. It’s still one of my favorites. I tagged a vimeo URL on a wall in Brooklyn. When surfing to the URL, you’d see the video of me tagging the URL on the wall. See here: http://graffitiloop.com/ All of your works like having solid statements in every aspect of human life. What’s your main hidden theme? There is none. My work is very much influenced by whatever happens on the internet paired with personal experiences in everyday life, including the tension that comes with working ‘corporate’ jobs.

29


Fuck inspiration, what’s your favorite meal? Belgian (french) fries, something that looks like this:

As an artist, how do you think was it okay to eat that $120 000 banana? I think both the piece and the ‘performance’ were equally boring. But yes, I think you are allowed to eat really boring art pieces. What is your secret behind being so handsome, smart and funny? I wish my crush asked me this. Your sense of humor is inimitable, how did you decide to start your @zero.emission.memes.2025? Were you sad or the opposite? I started it at a moment where I was starting to get a bit tired of the ‘influencer/self-branding parody’ instagram stuff combined with an overall saturation of aesthetics and ideas on the internet. Everything seems to be reproduced and reappropriated at such a fast pace now - especially by brands - which has been having a corrosive effect on artistic ideas in general. I felt like I started seeing the same things over and over in my feed, almost an endless mash-up of aesthetics, where any form of novelty loses its value - including my own work. So I started zero.emission.memes as an exercise detached from my main work and to help me rediscover what I’m interested in without being tied to any previous choices or expectations from anyone. I ended up making and reposting a lot of memes on issues that I relate to. In a way, this page acts as a moodboard of ideas and subjects I’m interested in right now, which helps a lot with developing a new layers in my work. Overall, I’m getting really interested in working around the ‘death of aesthetics’ both as a documentation of my personal experience and an attempt to understand what is left there for artists that cannot be co-opted by brands, corporations and big names.

30

How much time did you spend on the internet to always be on point? Too much.


31


32


33


If not Instagram, then what? Gaming as a creative platform, maybe Twitch. I have been playing with the idea of gamifying memes and thinking of exploring this direction more. How do you think technology changes and social media is affecting art and fashion nowadays? The feed is killing the artistic value for many. An art piece by an up and coming artist could be integrated’ in Virgil’s latest off-white ‘fashion’ show, almost immediately ‘swallowing’ the artist. An artists’ visual language could be completely reappropriated by some multinational brand for its ad campaign. We see it all the time. There’s no temporal ‘timeline’, people don’t know where ideas started. Not that artists don’t get their inspiration from somewhere, but there’s a difference between continuing telling a story, and just blatantly copying it. Who would you most like to collaborate with from the visual arts or any else spheres if any? Demna Gvasalia. I know it sounds cliché but his latest shows were just so on point. What’s next for you? Are there any upcoming projects you’re working on at the Moment? I’m working with some friends on a really cool video piece, a sort of automated branding/ advertising/marketing exercise that will be shown in March 2020 in Berlin. Other than that I have some new memetic visuals in mind that I should get going. Thanks for the reminder. How do you plan to spend the rest of 2019? With friends and family :)

@shakila.thebe

INTERVIEW

SHAKILA THEBE 50

A London based designer with a powerful cultural background, graduated from London College of Fashion (2017). Shakila Thebe’s design incorporates a thorough, elaborate and conceptual process. She focuses on the idea of ​​the juxtaposition between the poetic evocation of the clothes and the ephemeral nature of diaspora identities. Shakila has been intrigued by the idea of ​​how everyday clothes can evoke a poetic state and had made a huge impact on her BA’s collection. Each piece was created with the elements of the abstract and weirdness of the wild nature. Shakila Thebe often combined the skills of experiential research, an appreciation of craftsmanship skills and an intensive pattern cutting with a great eye for the details.


51


52


Hi Shakila, tell us briefly about yourself and how did you discover your interest in fashion design? Hi Just Magazine Team! Thanks for this wonderful opportunity. My name is Shakila Thebe. I am a womenswear graduate from London College of Fashion. I am based in south London. I come from Nepal since my dad moved to UK few years ago. I’m actively involved creating my pieces now and then. To sound cliché, it was when I went to this trip to the huge garment factory where my mom used to work as a project manager when I was a kid. I think since then I started making silly clothes or jokingly make hand sew stuff. I didn’t really have the knowledge of the culture of fashion/ fashion design, the appreciation, and the good/bad side of it until a bit later. I went to LCF that’s where I learned a lot about the technicality of the design and the impact it can make today. Who or what has had the greatest impact on your creation? It has to be the people around me and my experiences discovering my own self.

53


"THE BRAND'S DNA IS FLUID, ABSTRACT DESIGN WITH REWEARABILITY ELEMENT, GENDERLESS."

54


55


What is the concept behind yourlatest collection and how would you describe your brand’s DNA?

finding what would work best for your vision and where do you gaining your ideas?

The ‘Non-Seasonal collection’ is very personal and it’s a kind of revisited line from my final major project “I am made from an old you” thatI did for my final year at LCF. The concept behind the collection is the ephemeral identities. It’s about where I come from and re-locating me in the new place. So I wanted to reflect everything significant about my childhood in my research. Therefore, you will see lots of elements from children’s wear. My aim is to make a piece to be season less or trendless. It’suniquely made and one-off piece because it’sre-wearable despite the season or trend. Every piece was made from the recycled materials and the dead stock rolls of fabric. I had a whole van donated fabric cut off stock from the supplier. My brand’s DNA is fluid, abstract design with rewearability element, genderless. The core value of my style has been the same but simultaneously it has definitely evolved during the time.

My research process is very ritual and intentional but the results have never been deliberate that’s something I always thrive. It is thorough and the process practices the technique and skills with different approach. My intention is to achieve what my design process has led me. Anything that is intriguing. My ideas/concept is mostly experiential.

Could you briefly explain your overall process in

56

What do you want your clothes to say about the wearer? Reflect who they are and how they are feeling- the mood is important. What sets aside Shakila Thebe from the other brands that are on the scene at the moment? The background and beautiful culture I come from, my personal experiences mostly. My designs are very influenced by that and no one can take that away. I try to reflect that in my design so I can connect with people who share the same values.


"THE CORE VALUE OF MY STYLE HAS BEEN THE SAME BUT SIMULTANEOUSLY IT HAS DEFINITELY EVOLVED DURING THE TIME."

57


What material do you most like to work with? Nothing in particular. Everything is beautiful once you know how to play with it. I would like to work with the materials thatI canrecycle and upcycle. Which items are your personal favorite and who would you like to see wearing them? Who is your dream client to dress? Every piece is my favourite, but to pick one it has to be Mesh 3d Wire Top look inspired by the fishing handmade materials that is used in Nepal. I would love to see Meredith Monk wearing it and performing Lullaby vs. Night. That would be a dream. Who would you like to collaborate with from within the visual arts and fashion spheres if any? There are so many international creatives I would like to collaborate with. Currently I am collaborating with the Director/3D engineer Hyunsu Jeon aka PPICCU. We did a short video together so I would love to do few more and there’s a concept between us that is brainstorming/brewing at the moment. I love Ekhaus Latta’s work too. I’ve been following them since the beginning☺ What’s your next collection to be like? Good question-definitely an on-going process of my design aesthetic. I’m currently looking at lots of knitwear techniques. I had a very little interest in the knitwear until I saw the process of it in south London factory that I visited. It is so fascinating how they are well made and intricate together. I’m currently in touch with knitwear team in Nepal. They are amazing-everything issourced locally from Himalayas and people are working and well paid. So let’s see☺

58

How do you plan to spend the rest of 2019? Lots of resting, binging with friends and family (binging The Crown). I would like to do some activities too because that’s how I started this year;so that maybe I could start a new tradition in that way. I will go bouldering somewhere in south during the Christmas week. That’s probably the best time if you want some quiet time because half of the Londoners will be away haha.

http://www.leo-official.com/

INTERVIEW LĒO is a Belgium-based brand directed by the designers Leonneke Derksen (Royal Academy of Antwerp), Joëlle Laederach (FHNW) and sales director Matthias Medaer. The label established itself in 2016 as an answer to the need of intelligently crafted garments for real women. LĒO defines itself somewhere between the imaginary and the spirit of a generation, where various worlds, eras, movements, atmospheres and subcultures are placed together to result in an atypical modern silhouette. The SS20 collection entitled ‘TRIP’ represents the ultimate freedom and power of human being eliminating borders of any kind, blurring the line between luxury and day-to-day outfits through striking combinations of fabrics, featuring the iconic «glowing» shirt and the same pants, more on the pages further.

112


113


Tell us briefly about LĒO, who is behind it and how did first get into clothing design? LĒO established in 2016 and is since then directed by Leonneke Derksen and Joëlle Laederach. The two designers met in Paris where Leonneke Derksen and Matthias Medaer founded the company and moved to Brussels after that. For both Leonneke and Joëlle fashion was an evidential choice and the experiences they share from the time working for houses like Balenciaga, Chloé and Carven formed the desire for independence. Talk us through your latest collection. What was the inspiration behind the SS20 and how would you describe your brand’s DNA? In the SS20 ‘TRIP’ collection we explore the different interpretations of a journey and explain the duality between the spiritual and the material. The collection speaks about a personal, unique experience that is created in a space between instant pleasure and profound mindfulness. LĒO stands for a strong, contemporary and surprising silhouette with an awkward twist. Which garments are your personal favorite and who would you like to see wearing them? Our favorites are the flame pieces because of their surprising effect and the tie dye pieces because of their uniqueness of each garment. We would like to see strong, independent individuals with the courage to be awkward wearing them, like Billie Eilish, Jazzelle (uglyworldwide) or Kali Uchis.

114


115


116


What themes do you explore with your designs? All our themes explore certain experiences which broaden the horizon. Whether these experiences are imagined or actually lived fades into the background when they materialise into garments and translated through image. Can you talk us through the manufacturing process a bit – what sort of materials did you use and how did you source them? LĒO produces in Belgium, Portugal and Italy.The fabrics are sourced at fairs even though over time the personal archive of fabric swatches grew so much that it became a main source. We pick fabrics for their quality and innovation - each collection is carefully balanced in its variety of materials. Super

soft rib jersey, surprising denim jacquards, unique tie dyes, inventive technical fabrics etc. Most of our suppliers are based in Europe and Japan, where we have found the best qualities. How do you think technology changes and social media is affecting fashion nowadays? Technology and social media reprogram humans minds and affect their behaviour in many ways. There will be new consumers with new ‘needs’. Every generation has its own paradigms which shape culture. Fashion will always embrace changes and at this point the result of this is the interplay of fashion and technology. In particular this shows for now in the requirement of seamless communication and omni channel marketing strategies.

"In the SS20 TRIP collection we explore the different interpretations of a journey and explain the duality between the spiritual and the material.."

What sets aside LĒO from the other brands that are on the scene at the moment? It’s this particular awkward twist that makes LĒO unique. We do everything with passion and we love mixing different inspirations, eras, communities etc to create an atypic silhouette with a touch of nostalgia.

117


"ALL OUR THEMES EXPLORE CERTAIN EXPERIENCES WHICH BROADEN THE HORIZON. "

What do you feel needs to change within the fashion industry? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s partly the way of consumption that has to change towards more quality and less quantity. At the same time it is important, especially for a young brand, to keep on questioning certain usual structures like seasons and take risks to abandon them. Who would you like to collaborate with from within the visual arts and fashion spheres if any? We are always open to any kind of collaboration national and international - until now every collaboration we have done has been enriching, for example artwork collaboration with Uber and Kosher, music Mamiko Motto and Blu Samu, video Yaqine Hamzaoui. We always love to collaborate with people who have a strong vision or style and that are not categorized by one discipline , for example Frederik Heyman who mixes arts and fashion very uniquely or John Yuyi who has a very strong idea of image.

INTERVIEW

T LABEL is a luxury clothing brand, specialising in creating â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;romantic wearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; inspired by traditional and old-fashioned stories of love and lust. The brand has an emphasis on combining feminine shapes and fabrics with dramatic elements inspired by fencing wear. T LABEL is easily recognisable from their warm palettes, use of textile manipulation and ongoing aims to create wardrobe favourites out of sustainable fabrications and techniques. Each T LABEL collection narrates a story that carries you along with to another world, speaking in a thin magical voice straight with your inner self, resembling everyone substantial. Makes you feel a fresh wind on your skin on a warm day, pleasures the senses with a sound of raindrops filled with pure nostalgia, simultaneously revealing delightful future adventures.

149


Tell us briefly about the brand, who is behind it and what is your creative background? T LABEL is a bit like my time machine. The brand allows me to dive into the past, discover new artists and transfer myself to specific moments in time. It can be recognised through textile manipulation and upcycling techniques, the fabrics we use are either natural or brought from deadstock suppliers. I have titled the genre of clothing ‘Romantic Wear’ - garments are considered as layerable pieces, of which they can often be dressed up by night and toned town in the day depending on the occasion. Warm palettes are a consistent theme, hints of moody, dried up flower-like colourways always unintentionally creep into each collection. T LABEL was founded in my graduating year at London College of Fashion where I later went on to work for luxury fashion houses like Alexander McQueen, ACNE Studios and ERDEM. Working at McQueen taught me to enhance my romantic aesthetic and gave me the skills to research and sample in a very specific, artistic way. This combined with my work at ACNE in Stockholm had influenced block colour palettes and a sense of wearability to my designs also. Do you remember the very first time you came with the idea of your designs? My Mum and Dad had quite different music tastes so I was raised on a mix of Madonna (by Mum) and Motown (my Dad), there’s a lot of movement, melody, repetition and drama that I would dance and sing to. When I was a teenager my friends and I would often go into charity shops. They were super cheap in my home area. Back then you could go with £5 and leave with bags that overflowed. At school I never realised or knew that I wanted to be a fashion designer... I was artistic but I didn’t know how to leverage my passions in the right way.

Gradually, I became more inspired by vintage clothing, music, dance and older cinema and could see this subconsciously seeping through into my design. There wasn’t a specific moment when I felt I defined the style of the brand, it was more a gentle unwinding of my inner-self over time with external creative influences that created the vision. What is the concept behind your latest collection and how would you describe your brand’s aesthetic? My latest collection, entitled Fruit Gangsters, came from exploring the attitudes of females in the 20s - then creatively and playfully applying a T LABEL lens for the wives of mobsters. The inspiration came from an era I find myself revisiting often, I wanted to capture this juxtaposition between a tougher, strong character and combine with a more playful subject of fruits that are made up of fuzzy textures, knots and twists and remain robust around the edges. After leaving my job at McQueen and moving away from London a few months ago to go full-time with the brand, I wanted to visually interpret this moment in my life which was to focus on a strong and independent character and also remind myself to still have fun with it. The concept of this collection felt right and relevant to my life today; I always feel it is important to focus energy and hard work into a subject which is close to your heart. What is the most inspiring thing for you? A I am most inspired by films. I find such easy escapism through film and cinema. When I was studying at college and first met my boyfriend, we used to go to The Electric Cinema in Birmingham a lot - which is the oldest working cinema in the country. That specific year was filled with epic releases such as Birdman, The Grand Budapest Hotel and Whiplash. Following that, I got heavily into soundtracks, theatre, costume, set design and explored

THEREFORE WITH OF MY AIMS IS TO CREATE PLATFORMS OF ENGAGEMENT WITH MY PIECES."

How similar is your personal style to the designs you create? My everyday style is very casual so when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m working I want to feel comfortable - which means layers. However, I love the feeling of dressing up, I think the contrast is really exciting when you can be so relaxed in your clothes in one half of the day and then by night you are a whole new character. What do art and fashion mean to you and what has been your biggest achievement in this direction so far? Representation, belonging and collaboration. My biggest achievement has been finding a tight team around me. I found nearly all of the people who have helped me grow T LABEL through Instagram and they have all become some of my closest friends. They understand what the brand represents and what creative ideas to explore and disregard; this means I also trust their criticism. In terms of the hands-on part of creating the press collections, the team is small so it is nice to have amazing stylists, fabric developers and pattern cutters I can go to for honest advice. I believe creators can search most of their life trying to find a team of talented people across disciplines who are creatively aligned to their vision. I am incredibly grateful for these people.

In the early 80s, the ad agency BBH was responsible for the classic Levi’s advertisement which showed rows after rows of white sheep all pointing in one direction and one black sheep facing in the opposite direction, the accompanying copy read ‘WHEN THE WORLD ZIGS, ZAG’. This bold and gutsy ad was an illustration to show rebelliousness in an aspirational way. I use this as inspiration for many T LABEL garments. I hope they can be considered as talking points - whether through the design itself or the journey of the individual piece. The discussion and reaction of wearing T Label pieces is something I’m always intrigued by and I hope I’m creating pieces for life’s ‘ZAGGERS’. I believe communication is one of the healthiest things you can do, therefore with of my aims is to create platforms of engagement with my pieces. What fascinates you about the art world today? Which designers or artists have been the most influential to you? One of the most influential artists to me today is Kanye West. I appreciate his curiosity. To discover, challenge and pioneer. When I was studying, one of the most important things I learned was to be selective. You can have many great ideas and be excited to use them all at once but it’s knowing how to refine these ideas, selecting what is most relevant to what you are aiming to express in that moment and time. Kanye’s whole life is his brand identity and it is so carefully executed and considered. To be involved in music, films, design, architecture, religion and tailor all of this, presenting it together refreshingly and cohesively is unique. In my eyes, he has created a clear visual representation of a culture that many people want to be a part of and I respect this massively, it’s very exciting creatively. Other influences include the likes of Alex Turner, Wes Anderson and Solange. I love the comical yet romantic lyrics Turner pieces together, the way Wes combines colour and lighting with his unique cinematography and direction and Solange’s use of dancing and collaboration with emerging talents. How are you hoping your designs will evolve in the future? Where can we purchase your brand items? From following reactions to collections that we’ve released at T LABEL, it has been amazing to see core trend develop that has become synonymous with the brand. Our Gloves, the Florence Bra and the balloon-like panelled sleeves that are in the reoccurring shapes of the Lawes Jacket have all been very popular and we hope to create many similar shapes using this as the template. In the future, my aim is to take these pieces more international. We have recognised an exciting audience emerging in Berlin, Milan, New York and Los Angeles and currently looking for conceptual stores to work with in order to make products more accessible in these areas. At the moment products can be ordered directly - made to order, or purchased from London-based pop-up spaces and with our first stockist, the Lisbon-based concept store Auné.

156

"MY BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENT HAS BEEN FINDING A TIGHT TEAM AROUND ME.."

Is there a type of person you have in mind when designing your garments? How much of your collection met your expectations?


157


Who would you like to collaborate with from within the visual arts and fashion spheres if any? I would love to work with a musician on their stage/performance outfits. Musicians have such an impact on the fashion industry now and you can see how the two industries and creatively compatible. I think it would be an amazing thing for a singer/performer to be recognised for their own signature style and to be included in the design and curation process of what they wear on stage. Additionally, I would be open to collaborating with a sports brand as its such an important part of our wardrobes. From athletic to leisure to loungewear, I love the adaptability of sports clothing. I always imagine a pair of our classic Ray Gloves with ruffles twisting around the arm created in deadstock fabrics from a certain brand that uses three stripes that wrap around the arms. One day, maybe! What’s your next collection to be like? Electric… How do you plan to spend the rest of 2019? Seeing as many friends and loved ones before the new year. I have a feeling 2020 is going to be a big year for myself and the brand so I plan on finding ‘me’ time which will involve Aesop masks and looking for holidays.

INTERVIEW

META CUNDER @METACUNDER

183


Tell us briefly about yourself and how did you discover your interest in shoe design? I’m a Slovenian avantgarde shoemaker-artisan. I moved to London at 18 to study shoe design - and it seems like I’m staying a while. I was always artistic and had an interest in creating things, but it wasn’t until I was a teenager that I started spending every free hour of my time looking at shoes, buying shoes and finding crazy Camden Town platforms online – you couldn’t get them in Slovenia. When I was applying to art and fashion universities in the UK I googled ‘shoe design university’ as a joke and was ecstatic to find the BA Footwear Design course at UAL. I went for the interview and the rest is history. What does those shoes mean to you on a personal level? Is it your soul impersonations of some kind? Shoes have always had a special place in my heart. I love the way they make me feel, the way they change how I walk and stand… When I buy shoes for myself, I tend to give them names - they definitely have personalities and memories attached to them. I wanted to convey that quality in a physical form – creating shoes that are alive.

184


185


"MY DESIGN OBJECTIVE IS MARRYING THE FANTASY WITH FUNCTIONALITY."

186


Is there a type of person you have in mind when designing your shoes? Who is your dream client to shoe? I would say my ideal client is someone who appreciates shoes. Most of my creations demand confident characters who are not afraid to stand out, but I feel that love for shoes is essential. What is the concept behind your latest collection and how would you describe your brand’s DNA? As my graduation project, I developed an alternative footwear brand called Varmint. Loosely based on ‘vermin’, the word ‘varmint’ was discovered during research of the word ‘creature’ and its synonyms. The brand creates fantastical pieces of footwear with its own creaturely aesthetic such as exaggerated blinking eyes, 3D printed teeth and tongues - visually stunning and disturbing at the same time. The brand offers daring high heels and platforms in men’s and women’s sizes, championing inclusivity in fashion. What was/ is your biggest inspiration? It is hard to pinpoint an inspiration in a classical sense of the word as I feel it changes constantly, sometimes daily. I would say that my drive to create can be summed up by a quote from an anonymous responder to my research survey. The question was: “What do you look for in a shoe?” and the answer: “Something that you could wear a trash bag with, and the shoes would still make you/the outfit look AMAZING.” I want to create that shoe.

187


Can you talk us through your design process a bit – what are the key considerations? My design objective is marrying the fantasy with functionality. The dream and concept come first. At the research stage, I gather as much inspirational imagery as possible and try to work on the idea and mood holistically. I put emphasis on primary research and own material sourcing. I tend to sketch and collage a lot to come up with new and unexpected combinations - happy accidents often turn out to be your best ideas. The second consideration is functionality. I have a background in orthopaedic shoemaking, where functionality is 99% of the shoe. I take into account the materials and their capabilities as well as the shape of the shoe and its components, especially when it comes to high heels and platforms (which I love!). Shoes are intense. If you stitch a dress wrong, sure it will look a bit off or won’t fit, but if you put a heel together wrong… someone might trip and die! So the materials and making process definitely play a big part as I want to make sure all my shoes are safe (and ideally comfortable) to walk in. What has been your biggest achievement so far? Definitely winning the Cordwainers National Student of the Year Award this June with my graduate collection - Varmint. It is a national competition between the best students of the 3 shoe design universities in the UK. Winning the award was an amazing end to my 4 years at UAL. The continuous support of the Worshipful Company of Cordwainers and the professional network I gained as a result of winning are irreplaceable. How do you plan to spend the rest of 2019? I’m going to spend the rest of 2019 back home in Slovenia with my friends and family. Despite all the challenges of my career, finding a good balance between work and personal time has always proved to be one of the hardest things to do. Happy holidays!

188

"WHEN I BUY SHOES FOR MYSELF, I TEND TO GIVE THEM NAMES"


189


190


Who do you see yourself collaborating with from within the visual arts and fashion spheres? Right now the direction of the collection is very much focused on performance art and the drag scene. I would absolutely love to collaborate with Vander Von Odd (@vandervonodd), a genderqueer drag queen based in LA, whose surreal dark creations send chills down my spine. What’s next for you? Are there any upcoming projects you’re working on at the moment? I am currently doing my internship at Nicholas Kirkwood, a luxury shoe design brand based in London. I’m excited to learn about the inner workings of the industry so I can apply them to growing my brand and improving as a designer. I have some exciting projects and exhibitions coming up, but I can’t tell you much more at this point.
