Collection – Meet me in another world

The love story of a woman living in a fashion utopian world that meets a man who is different from everyone she met before. She directly falls in love with him. This man is from our world, not interested in fashion, he wears grey jeans with sneakers. For the love she has for him, she tries to be like him and adapt herself to his world but she cannot because she is too couture. She misses her fashion world which allows you to express herself freely without judgment so much that she breaks up with him, for the love of fashion”.
Being a bit fed up with our fashion industry and all the problems that are linked to it, I decided to create my own fashion utopian world which is a painting of all the elements I love about fashion.
My fashion universe is a place where people wear crazy, bright, bold fashion. A kind of fashion which is on the edge of being art that is able to transport viewers and wearers to another place amongst the galaxy or one that is parallel. In this world, people make the difference between clothes and fashion.
Imagine streets filled with colours, everyday is a festival, a carnival where no judgement exists and every shape becomes a personal message

About
Sarah Bruylant was born and raised in Belgium and moved to The Netherlands to study International Fashion and Design at AMFI (Amsterdam Fashion Institute). She always has been a free electron. Her approach towards fashion is singular: she considers craftsmanship as an art and do not pay attention to the so called fashion rules (start a collection by creating a colour cards, having fabric samples,…). Her work is a compromise of feelings, emotion and passion with no regard nor influence towards what is happening nowadays in the fashion industry. Instead of concerning herself in defining what best fits her within the industry, she enjoys being a free creator and making things without restrictions. Also, she believes our fashion industry is not working and does not cultivate enough the relationship between the owner and his garments while it is actually something which should be brought back to life. To her such a relationship is only possible if garments are truly representing the personality and the style of the person owning it. These pieces of fashion should be unique and special to the eyes of their owners. Rebuilding this relationship has been a base to her graduation collection and is definitely something which she will be developing in the future.
