Parsons MFA Fashion graduate investigates: “What is fashion? And what is...

Directly reflecting the mass of waste created by the fashion industry onto her designs, Liya Liu’s entire collection L’indefini-Trash – featured at MADE Fashion Week 2015 – revolves around trash. Most of the collections shown, including Liya’s work, were more avant-garde than what is typically shown during NYFW, making for a remarkable runway presentation. Raw and dirty, her designs take on an artistic arrangement of New York City behind the scenes. She talks to us about her upbringing and how it altered her outlook on the importance of sustainability in fashion. Recent graduate of MA Fashion Design and Society at Parsons School of Design and alumnus of BA Fashion Design Womenswear at Central Saint Martins, Liya also talks to us about her experiences both in London and New York as an individual, student, and designer.

FASHION CRITIC IAIN R. WEBB HAS BEEN COLLECTING FASHION INVITATIONS FOR...

From the loud to the minimal, the precious to the poor, the fashion show invitation remains as the highly fetishised golden ticket to the exclusive world of fashion shows. A new book, edited by award-winning fashion writer and Central Saint Martins professor Iain Webb, explores this colourful history, functioning as a disjointed but invaluable reflection of the development of fashion and its industry. As the book launches, we asked Webb a few questions about the making of the book and what it might mean when John Galliano sends you a rusty old key with a handwritten label attached.

The New MA Graduates: Maximilian Riedlberger

It’s quite clear that menswear is gaining momentum. We recently mentioned that there are a handful of positive things on the horizon with regards to menswear, as New York’ is now introducing a separate show schedule for it as of this summer, and the GQ Designer Menswear Fund is moving into its second year. “Everyone wants to become Craig Green,” is something that Fabio Piras, MA Fashion course leader, has mused prior to the graduate show earlier this year. In a fashion world where a big crowd wants to ride this wave, and where the menswear applications at CSM increase each year, Maximilian Riedlberger got into the MA Fashion at the very right moment.

JOHN GALLIANO Circa 1985 by Jill Furmanovsky

30 years unpublished, yet Galliano's impact on fashion is exponential to the above photos' exposure- or lack thereof... And he's not just a fashion behemoth; a cultural one too. It certainly speaks volumes that the woman behind these snaps, Jil Furmanovsky, has spent a lifetime shooting legends: Dylan, Blondie, Zeppelin, The Sex Pistols, The Clash... Consider Galliano's clout among that roster of punk iconoclasts, and you're reminded that the impact of the 'Enfant terrible' stretched beyond the parameters of fashion. Speaking to 1Granary, Furmanovsky talks the scene that spawned decades of 'outrageous' get-ups, and the genesis of arguably fashion's greatest force.
