Making her MBFWA debut, Christina Exie’s collection BASS clearly demonstrate her knack for having a very specific yet unpredictable inspiration… “inspired by the visuals created by low sound frequency vibrations.”
So what does the fashionisation of this influence look like?
A futuristic collection full of black, white, geometric prints, leather and blue lipstick… punctuated with the perfect tech accessory of the iPad cased in a handbag.
What I loved about the show was the attention to detail, with the soundtrack by Cy Gorman captured the perfect mood and essence of the collection which was full of beeps and boops, and musical imperfection thanks to the 8 bit influence. Very happy to say the soundtrack was pre-loaded onto my fave goodie from Fashion Week, a nifty and nerdy ‘designer’ USB.
If the name sounds familiar, she won the designer marathon also known as Project Runway Australia...
