Interview With Prieston Fashion Designer @ Nolcha Fashion Week AW15

Visit Prieston’s Profile 

WHAT WAS YOUR MAIN INSPIRATION FOR THIS SEASONS COLLECTION AT NOLCHA?

The “Dark Birds” collection for the FW15 season debuts at Nolcha Fashion Week. It was inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s strong blonde characters, and especially the movie “Birds”. There is another, a deeper message as well: as birds symbolize freedom and individuality, the collection encourages women to be fearless and even a bit crazy in fashion.

ALB_1892

WHAT IS THE MOST EXCITING ASPECT OF BEING A DESIGNER?
I love all parts of being a designer! The 6 months while the collections comes to life from the first inspiration to the fashion show is very exciting.

 

WHATS YOUR BIGGEST CHALLENGE?

Sometimes I need to deal with unnecessary things, that are not closely connected with my job as being a designer but I need to do them to help the brand grow.

 

WHAT PIECE HAVE YOU DESIGNED THAT YOU ARE MOST PROUD OF?

In early February 2014, I have designed stage costumes for Gigi Radics, a popular Hungarian singer for the Eurovision song contest. I had to give options for her outfit, the vocalists and the dancers as well, and the time frame was quite short. Then, after the team decided about the sketches, I had to prepare the costumes very quickly. It was not only about the design process, but there were many other aspects (the moves, the lights and cameras, etc.) that I had to take in account.

 

WHATS THE FIRST PIECE YOU EVER DESIGNED?

I was 4 years old, and I designed a dress for my grandma’s birthday. I sewed it by hand, and in the end it looked like a big circus tent. I loved it, and imagined that she will wear it to pick me up in the kindergarten and I could brag about it. So granny’s birthday was a big family gathering, and while I showed how to wear the dress, I accidentally torn it. Everybody was laughing but it never made me sour. Instead it made me even more sure-footed about becoming a designer.

 

HOW HAVE YOU GROWN AS A DESIGNER SINCE YOUR FIRST COLLECTION?

While the DNA of the brand remained the same, I feel more freedom during the designing process, and my personality is more visible on the designs.

 

WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO CELEBRATE/RELAX AFTER YOUR NOLCHA SHOW?

Go out and party! I hope we will find lots of new friends and we will have a great night.

Interview with Charles + Ron: Fashion Designers @ Nolcha Fashion Week AW15

Visit Charles + Ron Profile 

WHAT WAS YOUR MAIN INSPIRATION FOR THIS SEASONS COLLECTION AT NOLCHA?
We were inspired by “Ganutell” which is a Maltese art form where intricate Copper, Silver and Gold wires become handcrafted flowers. These flowers are than carefully placed under a glass dome. They were the Grandmasters; favorite gift to the Popes and Royalty. An artistic treasure still admired in the 21st Century. Opulent and decadent. Fragile and feminine.

WHAT IS THE MOST EXCITING ASPECT OF BEING A DESIGNER?
The most exciting aspect of being a designer is that we are always creating. The journey from original idea to the final garment is something very special.

 

WHAT PIECE HAVE YOU DESIGNED THAT YOU ARE MOST PROUD OF?
We are very proud of our new collection and printed silks but especially proud of our final gown that features an original handcrafted “Ganutell ” necklace.

 

WHATS THE FIRST PIECE YOU EVER DESIGNED?
The first collection we designed together consisted of several hand painted white dresses, we can’t remember which was the very first one, as this was quite a few years ago.

 

HOW HAVE YOU GROWN AS A DESIGNER SINCE YOUR FIRST COLLECTION?
Yes we have definitely grown through the years ,as we have found our style and we have made the history and culture of our home country an important part of our work.

 

WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO CELEBRATE/RELAX AFTER YOUR NOLCHA SHOW?
We will be hosting a fabulous after party on February 15th together with Nolcha FW , so that is where will celebrate our new collection!
