MFW x GFC F/W ‘24: From avant-garde designs to classic fashion staples

Fashion designers from all over the world have come together in Milan to present their latest collections at the Global Fashion Collective show. From avant-garde designs to classic fashion staples, this event is a testament to the power of creativity and the beauty of diversity. Let’s celebrate the creative genius of these designers and experience the magic of fashion.

Sanjukta’s studio presented the ,,Kohua – Komal” (,,Soft”) collection, which is all about the softness of handcrafted silk from Assam, India – as in how it feels and how it makes you feel.
Crafted with the greatest care and dedication, each piece showcased is a testament to the rich heritage of Assam's silk weaving tradition, where every thread tells a story of generations of artisans who have perfected their craft, weaving together dreams and aspirations into the fabric of their creations.

Blending traditional elegance with contemporary flair, each garment is a masterpiece of fusion fashion, a seamless marriage of Eastern grace and Western chic. A silhouette that is both timeless and modern, offering a fresh perspective on traditional Indian attire. This showcase is a beacon of sustainability and ethical fashion in a world where mass production has come to reign supreme.

PATRYCJA PLESIAK presented ,,Muses: Past and Present”, a collection inspired by powerful, courageous women who have contributed to history.

Examples include Edith Piaf, Rita Hayworth, Sophia Loren and Maria Skłodowska-Curie, as well as those who lived in the shadow of famous artists, such as Francoise Gilot (Picasso's muse) and Victorine Meurent (Édouard Manet's muse).

The designs reflect their character and style. While each creation is different, all share the same timelessness of cut and nobility of materials.

The collection includes dresses and bags hand-painted by the designer herself.
The corset and drapery elements reflect a classic take with a modern twist and a nod to Art Deco. The runway show narrated the story of the lives of extraordinary women and the desire to perpetuate the memory and history of their lives, which can also inspire ours.
