Studio 5: Defilé

Defilé

Studio brief

Defilé

For a luxury fashion brand, the defilé is the pinnacle of the season's work. It is the presentation of the most prestigious and press worthy lines from the house and the culmination of months of research, development, textiles innovation, collaboration and art direction. It denotes a historical timeline for the life of the brand. It is the show.

The philosophy of Studio Defilé is to perform at your best. Every project, every garment should be worthy of the Defilé (the show).

It's the year you blossom into the designer you want to be – by applying all of your knowledge and creativity released through previous projects and applied to a range of Defilé-related briefs.

Studio philosophy:

  • find your voice
  • identify your signature
  • follow your dreams
  • Defilé
