The 28 entries from Aalto’s talented students were a celebration of individualism and showed a connection to contemporary arts. The various shapes and silhouettes of the looks spoke of the weight of clothes and the ease or complexity of movement. In many cases a certain unfinishedness evolved into deconstruction, evocative of the aesthetic of ruins. The maximal yet elegant feel materialized as a mixture of fine, handmade textiles and fabrics such as brocades and velvet. The overall impression was decadent and full of historical references, from poetic to dramatic. In this show, with its decorativeness and stunning colors, the students created more than wearables, but objects of desire.
