Katherine Mavridis: Purity straight out of Parsons

Katherine Mavridis’ approach to her designs is atypical to the purpose of fashion we are so familiar with: to dress a body. Whether to flatter, conceal, deceive or flaunt, fashion is at its core a second skin of our desires. It’s odd to then hear Mavridis speak of her approach to fashion as one that is devoid of the body, rather using the reduced form of cloth itself as a foundation for her sculptural forms that exist as entities within themselves.

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.
