Melitta Baumeister is a german fashion designer based in New York City, who presented her graduation collection at NYFW. Parsons just launched a future star, because unlike other fashion designers in the making, Melitta has the artistic sensitivity to merge different areas. Sculpture, architecture, objects, fashion and installation coexist in the same minimalistic atmosphere, where white is enough to transport us to the hellenic period. Nonetheless she applies and develops innovative techniques, maintaining her solid concept all the way through.

// Applying techniques from sculpture, architecture, and fine art, materiality becomes the conceptual core of my process. Casting a garment in one continuous layer of silicone questions conventional methods, which focuses on the development of the garment. This specific technique entails a shift of shape-defining factors. Shape is no longer determined through the interplay of fabric and pattern, but by the mold into which it is cast. The mold becomes the blueprint of a form and captures the essence of a garment without itself being the thing it emulates. The mold with its capability for endless repetition, then becomes a metaphor for the repetitiveness of the fashion industry itself. - M.B.

Photos by XanaDelGado

Visceral and intricate photographs fascinate me, the emotional depth and sickness we can bring to them is beyond real. Therefore, no one better than Xana to capture the density of one's soul and the desperation of one's body to express a secret suffering. Bones aching to rip my skin apart. My darkest hour and my relief. Black and white poetry in a language more universal than words. 

//To take photographs means to recognize-simultaneously and within a fraction of a second-both the fact itself and the rigorous organization of visually perceived forms that give it meaning. It is putting one’s head, one’s eye and one’s heart on the same axis. - Henri Cartier-Bresson
