Hybrid event: join virtually or in person!
The Creative Directors of BOTTER and Nina Ricci, will take you into a deep dive on the relationship between nature and designing fashion.
Since forever, collections are based on the galaxy, designs based on fungus, floral application or leopard print accessoires - nature is a massive source of inspiration for the fashion industry.
Lisi Herrebrugh and Rushemy Botter take this a level up. Their BOTTER manifesto says:
“(...) We care about fashion, as the golden daughter of all arts. We care about nature, as the golden mother of all arts. Without nature, no arts, nothing. Without the sea, no human, no us. (...)”
The BOTTER Coral Nursery, an organization that actively works on reviving the coral reef, and using innovative materials, such as the ocean waste plastic materials, for their collections is part of their mission to make a change in the industry.
Nature is not only their inspiration to create fashion, but also their drive.
Join the masterclass to learn more about their thought processes for creating fashion for BOTTER and Nina Ricci, struggles they’ve come across and their ultimate dreams.
