Graduate Fashion Week - LISAA 2016

A collection on the theme of the sea

The starting point for third year Fashion Design-Pattern Making student Aude Langlois-Meurinne was the 2013 film "Fidelio: Alice’s Journey", directed by Lucie Borleteau. As the wind blows, we discover 30-year-old sailor Alice. She is a mechanic on Fidelio, a merchant navy cargo ship that is crossing the oceans.

Over the course of my research, I brought the character of Alice closer to the women of the sea – sailors, fisherwomen…

Describing her project, Aude writes, "Over the course of my research, I brought the character of Alice closer to the women of the sea – sailors, fisherwomen… In their own way, each of these women has a path, a different personal mission, but the link that brings them together is the very essence of their journey: the sea. For me, each evokes determination and life – the life that they love and defend, filled with a thirst for the sea, experiences and travel. That is why I chose the sea’s swell as a metaphor for their feelings. The sea is powerful, indomitable and we yield to its energy. The sailor composes with this, in search of harmony."

I transcribed the idea of waves and spray through large scale graphic patterns.

"In my collection, I wanted to mix together both a contemporary graphic and a poetic style. The colour palette of my project is inspired by the film, from the never-ending palette of navy blues to the bright or burnished red of rusting cargo. I transcribed this idea of waves and spray through large-scale patterns and raw and natural embroidery in rope and wool. They unfurl via my clothes like the spray swept by the wind. The idea of travel, the influence of the countries crossed, is translated by voluminous cuts inspired by distant horizons, and we also find the forms of workmen’s overalls and officers’ uniforms."
