DALLAS, Aug 29, 2008 / FW/ — After putting Brazil’s migrant farm workers center stage in a very high concept show, Alexandre Herchcovitch is taking a political stance this season with battlefield chic as a platform to protest war.
Inspired by the components of war torn regions from across the globe, Alexandre Herchcovitch merges established military attire with characteristics of the countries they have destroyed.
Drawing from customary Middle Eastern, African, European, Turkish, Indian and Pakistani style, the designer artistically infuses his creations with Western military accents.
The collection poses as a political statement innovatively brought to life. Herchcovitch has creatively used fashion to spread thoughts of love, liberty and peace instead of war.
