Kiran Ramlagan: Art Deco Dress
Name: Kiran Ramlagan
Design Title: Art Deco Dress
How do you feel about being a finalist in the 2016 Fashion Design Competition?: I am excited at the opportunity to showcase my talents in this competition. I have the ability to create a 2d form into a 3d form and this will be the perfect platform to do that. I’m hoping to pursue my interest in fashion and this will add to my portfolio and hopefully be the beginning of my journey into fashion.
What does ‘style’ mean to you?: To me style is very individualistic anything can be stylish to anyone. Everyone has their own sense of style. As fashion changes continually the ability to adapt the way you dress to fit the latest trends can make you stylish,
Who is your style icon?: I don’t have a style icon as such, but I draw inspiration from many people around me. Designers that have an influence on my work are conceptual designers who are able to integrate very artistic and innovative conceptual ideas into high fashion e.g Viktor & Rolf
Please summarise the concept behind your design in one sentence: I would describe my outfit as art deco chic with a modern twist. It’s edgy and trendy yet wearable to any event, the colours are bold and rich.
