Hey guys! This is a special Edit as I had the pleasure to photograph in this beautiful leather laser cut dress from the newest Mariana Jungmann’s SS16 collection.
Mariana Jungmann is a brazilian designer that created her eponymous women’s wear label in 2013. As a London College of Fashion alumnus, her MA graduate collection was one of the ten selected to represent the college in their London Fashion Week show in February 2014, and at the following season she did her solo debut show with Fashion Scout.
Tha Brand has as its trademark the use of Renaissance lace, and her designs turn the abstract and floral shapes of the lace into something modern and intriguing, using a perfected moulding technique. And not only restricted to lace, her creativity is translated into different textiles and textures via prints and laser cutting among other methods, creating the label’s powerful visuals!
As for their Spring Summer 16 Collection – Himmavanta – the inspiration came from the Buddhist legend surrounding the forest at the base of Mount Meru. Beautiful motifs can be seen in silk organza, silk habotai and cotton sateen. I’m simply in love with this dress, it’s details and specially it’s back. You can find some of Mariana Jungmann’s finest pieces at SAXA Store.
