Ferencz Borbala is a fashion and jewelry Designer based in Budapest. In her collections she is constantly looking for new sustainable solutions. She is working with experimental materials like upcycled textiles and recycled plastic. Her style is recognizable by its vibrant colors, non-conformism and social criticism.
The collection is inspired from Michelangelo Pistoletto’s work: “The Venus of the Rags”. Following the main characteristics of Arte Povera, were used everyday materials such as secondhand clothes and post-consumer plastic waste.
Through exaggeration and experimental materials, the designer created a new aesthetic of these leftovers, which is questioning the way society thinks about waste and value. The silhouettes of the outfits reveal a glimpse of historical inspiration, as a contrast to the contemporary fabrics and sportswear details.
