Mode Suisse 2022 - Highlights from the Show

Hi Everyone,

Mode Suisse is the one bi-annual event that brings together everyone in the Swiss Fashion Industry. It is a great door opener for local designers especially as the event is also staged in Geneva, Paris and New York.

Each season Swiss boutique owners, design students, fashion photographers, influencers, local celebrities etc. gather together to support the local fashion industry. Seeing old faces once again certainly helped the 3/4 of an hour wait to get into the door this year.

There is always more to the runway collections than meets the eye. This year there was a huge focus on the environment but also an increased emphasis on showing collections which are truly wearable.

Nomad Issem  – from the outside it may look like a very conservative collection but the message is greater – “high flyers need hero pieces”.

I love the classic clean lines – a beautifully made collection of timeless pieces.

This collection has fantastic details such as the opulent head gear and sparkles throughout. Using up cycled fabric leftovers and natural plant based dye. One could say the collection was a mixture of punk and the 1920’s thrown together into one pot.

 

4. Sophie Fellay
