!! OMG, Helm yes!: Bernhard Willhelm’s graduating UAA students !!

__Martha Foremniak_1037068.jpg
Last week Vienna’s University of Applied Arts showcased their graduating students’ collections, all of which had been tutored by fashion demi-god Berhard Willhelm who holds the position of Head of the UAA’s Fashion Department [previously held by Vivienne Westwood and Raf Simons respectively].
Follow the jump to see several of the graduating designers works which include numerical slip-ons, hairy pants, high-waisted MUSCULATURE LEGGINGS and a wooly neon Snuggie.

During my studies I started realizing that fashion is not just something you wear, it is also supposed to support and even protect you. For me fashion now could also be called armor and it starts with what you wear underneath the obvious. _graduating student Stella Achenbach

!! OMG, that’s knot knitwear: Philli Wood’s Westminster BA ’13 collection !!

Dezeen_Philli_Wood_at_Westminster_Fashion_2013_1.jpg
Philli Wood’s BA collection plays with flat cable knit print on neon peachy and pinky sporting nylons, with the silhouettes oversized down to the way-thicker-than-is-practical rubber tie-strings…I can just imagine trying to synch these garments in at the waist you would need all number of burly seafarers to tandem yank the rubber drawstrings…”and HAAAAUL and HAAAAUL”, some guy beating a drum to keep them in time!
The colours, layering and VOLUMINOUS EXTREMES are so fun with this collection, including a winged-chiffon breazy top [after the jump] blown up to hang down to the knee and make the model look like one of those PEACHY BEACHY DANCING BABY STINGRAY!

!! OMG, Tai Land: Steven Tai F/W ’13/14 !!

42.jpg
Since seeing Steven Tai’s FW ’13 collection at Toronto Fashion Week this year, and hearing Tai speak at the Q&A afterwards about his experimental material production, it has stuck with me how exploratory yet homely-nerdy he seems, which is very much reflected in his collection.
His FW line includes in-house produced silicone material [complete with inset magnetic fasteners], sci-fi space invasion printed postcard sweaters and masses of glossy diagonal quilting, culminating in a sort of SKI-WEAR FOR NURSE JACKIE ON THE WHACKIE-BACKIE type thing.
So how happy was I to see that Bullett sat down for a chin-wag with the London-schooled designer to talk about the ‘Star Treck Into Darkness’ wardrobe, Tai’s favourite fantasy card game and his most favourite film ever ‘Scott Pilgrim vs. The World’…I mean is that not everyone’s favourite film ever…what do you mean “no”?!
You can read the full interview HERE, and see a portion of the collection including the collaged UFO illustrations of Franco Brambilla, and photographed by one of omgblog’s favourite snipper snappers Miguel Jacob.

!! OMG, New Yorkshire Terriors: HSNY’s doggie portfolio !!

Screen Shot 2013-06-04 at 9.53.12 PM.png
Check out Elmer here, he has a hollowed-out plaster cast carrot-colour-combo dildo for a leg, want to adopt him? Personally I’m looking simply to adopt his look…on me.
New York’s Humane Society obviously has a faggle-rocker on doggie-styling duties because these fellas are adorned with all sorts of kinds of neck a-cute-trements.
There were some shots taken of some woof looking dogs also in need of homes and with normal bare necks but that’s just not as fun or cute as having dogs with air hostess side-tie cravats and CRICKET PLEASANTRY BOW TIES, and you are NOT going to get adopted without the perfect spring-summer upper-spinal embellishment.
