Gioia Seghers - new autumn/winter 2015 collection

<p> A graduate of the renowned <strong>La Cambre Mode[s]</strong> in Brussels -where she still lives and works- <a href="http://www.gioiaseghers.com/">Gioia Seghers</a> wins several awards in 2012 with her Final Year collection, including the prestigious <strong>Dior</strong>, <strong>Weekend</strong> <strong>Fashion</strong> <strong>Awards</strong>, <strong>Libre</strong> <strong>Essentielle</strong> and <strong>RA</strong> <strong>prizes</strong>. Gaining instant attention from international press and buyers, her striking and sculptural clothes distinguish themselves from the rest, timeless and delicate at the same time. Following her graduation show, she is invited by the <strong>Musée</strong> <strong>de</strong> <strong>la</strong> <strong>Dentelle</strong> <strong>de</strong> <strong>Caudry</strong> in France to exhibit selected silhouettes, underlining her innovative and refreshing use of lace.</p> <p>  </p> <p> In 2013, Seghers decides to launch her eponymous line, focusing on refined and high-end womenswear. Pursuing her ongoing research around textiles and original shapes, she enters the <strong>Showroom [les belges]</strong> competition and wins a spot in October, allowing her to showcase and sell her clothes during <strong>Paris Fashion Week</strong>. In February 2014, she presents her first ready-to-wear collection -designed and produced in Belgium- within <strong>No</strong> <strong>Season's</strong> showroom. </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="_15_0147_2-1418123811" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/145310/_15_0147_2-1418123811.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="140903_-_weekend_knack-2-1418034260" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/144909/140903_-_Weekend_Knack-2-1418034260.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> Ambiguous and intricate, Gioia Seghers' style is a study in contradictions, hovering between <strong>sensual femininity and sharp structure.</strong> Her vision of fashion is personal and intense, unveiling subtle emotions. Strongly influenced by her grandmother's elegance -whose Italian roots and poise impressed her as a child- Seghers infuses her clothes with a deep sense of respect, reworking the notion of a <strong>contemporary </strong>wardrobe, which speaks to women in an intimate way. Transparency, eyelets and lace are some of her signatures, as well as a European sense of <strong>sophistication</strong>.</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="140901_-_big_book-1418034174" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/144905/140901_-_Big_Book-1418034174.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>                                       Discover all the collections on her <a href="http://www.gioiaseghers.com/" target="_blank">website</a></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Sans_titre-1-1418128873" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/145340/Sans_titre-1-1418128873.jpg"></p> <p> Inspired by transient feelings and sensations, her pieces are <strong>tactile and seductive</strong>, emphasizing the designer's instinctive approach to clothes. Using fabrics as her departure point, Seghers elaborates new stories in her head, replacing narratives at the core of her design process. Inspiration comes in <strong>surprising</strong> and <strong>mysterious </strong>ways, ranging from a series of old photographs, a poem in a book or a random thought expressed by a friend. </p> <p> <img alt="Sans_titre-1g-1418129262" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/145342/Sans_titre-1g-1418129262.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>                        </strong><strong>              </strong><a href="https://www.facebook.com/gioia.seghers" target="_blank">FACEBOOK</a>     <a href="http://instagram.com/gioiaseghers" target="_blank">INSTAGRAM</a>      <a href="http://gioiaseghers.tumblr.com/press" target="_blank">PRESS</a></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p>
