Fashion designer Mariana Jungmann presented her Fall Winter 2016.17 Deshecho Collection, inspired by Mexican artist Frida Kahlo and sculptor Monica Piloni, during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin.
“Just like the two Latin artists, a strong yet unsettling aesthetic is playfully reworked by Jungmann into something beautifully unexpected. Jungmann’s way of using very feminine design alongside traditional tailoring techniques ties into a contemporary, unorthodox way. Embroidered dresses, contrasting textures and sophisticated detailing bring the Mexican heritage to life in voluminous skirts and non-traditional ponchos. A strong feature on all of her collections is the use of handmade renaissance lace, which for this show was showered with over ten thousand hand embroidered Swarovski crystals.“
