Dear Mr/Mrs supplies ArtEZ Masters 2011 Graduates
Visual duo Freudenthal/Verhagen decorated ArtEZ’s Fashion Master (Generation 12) end-of-year show during Amsterdam Fashion Week yesterday. The short film created initially as a teaser shown before the show told a spooky story surrounded by delicate movements and passionate tension. This high quality trimming, graduate’s collective “lookfilm”, is where garments combine on different arenas dominated by strong body gestures (two outfits per student).
The just born five designers proved their capacity to collaborate and interact with other cultural disciplines; something the master course is willing to teach to each generation. Dear Mr/Mrs struggles with fail and gender borders, making the garments alive while bringing an awkward sensation: high on invisible style. Enjoy it!
