NABA takes part to Milano Moda Graduate 2021, the event organised by Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana, dedicated to Italian fashion school excellence. On September 26th at La Permanente, Juliene Rosa Quaglio, alumna of the BA in Fashion Design, presented her saw “lalalangue collection”, as one of the nine finalists of the category fashion design.
Laura Bigogno, student of the same BA, was also selected in the category YKK Italia, main partner of the event, within the eleven designers from a variety of Italian schools that were asked to create a look focusing on zippers.
“lalalangue collection” by Juliene Rosa Quaglio is a capsule collection composed of 5 looks and inspired by Lacanian concepts of femininity, enjoyment and language, exploring the voice as an unconscious activity that at the same time awakens in the spontaneity of movements and improvisation. The student translated this idea, using textile scraps to create furs and false selvedges, making her project ethical and sustainable, and used the free-motion quilting technique inspired to voice spontaneity, to free association of thought and to what came to her mind while sewing.
Student Laura Bigogno’s outfit, presented at Milano Moda Graduate and created using YKK Italia’s accessories, has been conceived based on the idea of corruption, a natural process that can sometimes be induced by man. Her garment gives the opportunity of transferring the change caused by events through the possibility of varying its shape, according to the will of the wearer, through elements connected by zips.
