Fall Winter 2019/20 ready-to-wear collection/lookbook
The FW1920 collection of Julia Heuer takes us back to the original fireplaces where textiles are crafted. The fabrics are stirred and dyed in the witchs` cauldron and dried in the light of the full moon. Earthy ancient colors turn into toxic pigments while the flowers go up in smoke. Each piece is hand pleated in the traditional technique of the Arashi Shibori.
Julia Heuer has graduated from the Denmarks Designskole of Copenhagen and the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste of Stuttgart in textile design. She is renowned for her dynamic prints and artisanal handmade plissé. She was awarded for the prestigious Swiss Design Prize in 2016 for her collection Adobe Indigo.
A key component of Julia Heuer’s designs lies in her process, where she illustrates print stories directly onto raw fabric before applying the Japanese tie-dying pleating technique of Arashi Shibori. This is the starting point of all collections and the reason for their unique aesthetic.
