Patrik Guggenberger views fashion design as art, paying no attention to convention, he draws inspiration from everything around him and directly translates this into beautifully constructed garments. His collection ‘Rift’ is an exploration of the body and the mental or physical problems which arise from various situations. The white material which the collection is made up of, evokes memories of doctors and hospitals and devoid of any colour, the detail of the clothing is very much in the design. Claustrophobia is portrayed through the use of buckles and the restricted structure of the garment. Whilst the feature of zips combined with ruffled material and snake skin patterned leather can be associated with the shedding of skin. The overall collection is truly unique, with each garment having depth and a personal feel which can only be created by a designer who is passionate about his creations.
