A beautiful, silent protest against racism was made during Fashion Week by Ida Klamborn.
– I’m writing in flowers with permanent marker, says the designer.
Ida Klamborn received the honour of closing Fashion Week in Stockholm this year, expectations were high but they were met as well.
Klamborn had her first show in January, so this newcomer has definitely made a real kickstart in the industry.
– My show in January was explosive. This season I wanted to create a more quiet expression, says Klamborn.
The familiar A-line blouses, two-coloured tops with v-necks and accent colours appeared this season again. Klamborn’s signature pink colour was seen accompanied by olive green, orange, lots of white and sequins. Seinabo Sey, an up and coming artist, joined the models on the runway and performed live for the audience.
The show and collection contained hidden political messages and statements, it was a silent protest against racism in society. A spray painted lily, found on various pieces in the collection as well as on a card distributed to everyone in the audience, was inspired by signs Klamborn saw in Stockholm. These signs were flowers covering racist messages on buildings and this inspired Klamborn to create something beautiful and take action against racism at the same time.
– Using my role as a designer to express an opinion motivates me and is consistent through everything I create and present, says Klamborn.
