On Sunday, July 10th has fashion designer Zyanya Emperor for the third time presented a couture collection during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam. The show took time for the first time at the Gasometer on the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam. Zyanya Emperor has her collection “CHIRAL” based on the parallel universe, mirror images do not look alike. According Zyanya; “Even though everything would look and be the same, it would have a reversed effect, basically everything is different”.
The inspiration for Zyanya’s new couture collection was born when she was traveling in Scotland. She took a photo of a mountain landscape reflected in a lake. So Zyanya got the idea to investigate reflections. This gave her duality, symmetry, patterns, and cell division. In this study Zyanya has many new different structures found in which it has inspired this collection. With the beads are made structures which resemble molecules, organisms and coral surfaces. Zyanya is a big fan of complex bead techniques, so this season there are presented wonderful creations. Each item in this new couture collection is unique.
