SALON/Big Bang: Fracture space by Liselore Frowijn at the Oude Kerk
During SALON/Big Bang fashion designer Liselore Frowijn will present her new collection
and fragrance. Liselore recently graduated cum laude at ArtEZ Institute of the Arts in
Arnhem in 2013 on her bachelor of fashion design. With her final collection she won the
Frans Molenaar Couture Award and participated in the Festival International de Mode
et de Photographie à Hyères last April, where she won the Grand Prix with her design
for Chloé. This year she worked on several projects such as for Vlisco and participated on
several exhibitions. During the last months Frowijn worked on her new collection.
In her work Liselore is permanently searching for the clash on sportswear and luxury.
The concept of her new collection ‘’Fracture space’’ is based on the wardrobe of a woman
who is fully at ease with herself. She moves elegantly and dynamically in space, and lets no
person interrupt her energy. Instinctively she knows the base of pure luxury. The silhouette
is based upon biking-jackets, carried out in tweed, and finished with sporty pipings.
Liselore combined her own developed and hand painted fabrics with materials from the
outdoor industry, together with rich jacquards from Italy. With this collection she caught all vibrations of this enervating year: all bits and pieces that surrounded her and developed her signature. Like the auras of Kokoschka, his powerful paintings displayed the energy of his characters; he unrevealed their soul on almost an animal kind of way with his rough brush. His work inspired Frowijn to develop rhythmic prints, floral and striped, carried out in colours of the night. (photocredits: JW Kaldenbach)
