Last nite saw the gathering of Zurich’s fashionistas at the 15th Mode Suisse show.
Mode Suisse is an iconic Swiss fashion event held bi-annually in Zurich and Geneva. It provides a platform where local designers can make themselves known. It’s also the meeting place of anyone somehow connected to the Fashion industry in Zurich.
I always love seeing the new collections and seeing what Switzerland’s young designers are creating. This season saw boundaries being pushed even more than ever. On the one side deep messages were hidden behind several collections. On the other we saw some lovely ready to wear looks walk down the runway. Hence todays title: “Mode Suisse Edition 15 – Where Fashion Meets Art”
Have a look at highlights from each of the 10 designers showcasing their collections.
