Kevin’s graduate collection is unlike anything I have seen before. Perhaps this is partly due to his source of inspiration being truly unique in itself. His collection is based upon two female anime characters and their electrifying transitioning phases. The duo are transforming themselves into bigger, brighter, and more powerful versions of their former selves. Alter egos so to speak. Cue the strobe lights, darting sparks, flashes of luminous light and a whirlwind of colour. This enchanting re-birth holds an intrinsically deeper meaning for Kevin, who as a child can recall watching his favourite show religiously. “I was obsessed with these anime characters because I could relate. There was this school-girl who just wanted to be a hero, and then there was me. A young boy living in a small Swiss village, who just yearned to be a fashion designer.” For Kevin, everything suddenly became a little clearer, “This explosion is something inside of me. It is about how I can explore these feelings.” Kevin knew he had to investigate this connection further, and during his hours of research he realised that “each transition phase used the same colour scheme.” A light-bulb moment followed. Kevin now knew what he was going to do for his final collection. He was going to show everyone that he could be free and wild in ways they couldn’t have imagined. It was time for his transformation.
