It is what we fight for at KLUK CGDT.
We believe in quality and uniqueness, exclusivity and craft. Fashion is for the wearer, it is an expression of who you are, it is for the individual and the success in design is in its totality, the sum of its parts ( design,fabrication, pattern making, sewing) and only works when combined with the person in it and how it is worn.
In her latest presentation, Li Edelkoort (forecaster) also speaks of such Goddesses, of tribes of women that are individual personality types determining there own tastes.
She predicts a shift from “influencers” back to designers, it is about creativity and freedom, not dictation.
These are women that dress for themselves, they are powerful and extraordinary and are noticed.
