LFW S/S’15: Dora Abodi – baroque futurism Bailey MossSeptember 19, 20149 viewsFashionLFWLondon Fashion WeekSS150 Comments9 views Dora Abodi’s signature style can be defined as baroque futurism; fusing past and future classical art and religious rituals with high technology. The concept of the S/S’15 collection comes from a fictional cult that has its own symbolism and rituals alongside an extraterrestrial technologic culture. Antiquity, instinct and opulence is mixed with rigid and robotic technology to create a new religion that binds different cultures, yielding prints which are rich, vivid and organic. Abodi’s Transylvanian roots are revealed with the dark romantic storytelling that runs throughout the collection. This season sees a blend of metallic royal blue, antique gold, champagne silver, and transparent black and white. Fabrics used include custom printed silks, hand cut-out leather, pearls, beads and cabochons, silk organza, metallic gold lame, jacquard and embroideries. The signature symbol, The Twin Unisus, appears within the prints, embroideries and the hand embellished ornaments upon varnished leather. Born in Transylvania and raised in Budapest, Dora Abodi showed interest in fashion from a young age where she began drawing sketches in her grandfather’s studio. She graduated from French Mod’ International Art and Fashion Academy in 2009 and obtained a Masters in Fashion Design at Domus Academy Milan in 2013. Her accolades include Domus Academy Vogue Talents Special Awards (2013), Future of Fashion designer by NOT JUST A LABEL (2014), Vogue Italy Dubai Mall Project (2014), and the Independent Handbag Designer Awards (NYC) nomination in Best Overall Design category (2012 and 2013). The brand’s celebrity clients include Lady Gaga, Tyra Banks, Jena Malone, Bella Thorne, Dj Chelsey Leyland, Trish Summerville (costume designer of The Hunger Games), Bailee Madison, Eiza Gonzalez and Lindsay Lohan.
