MADRID, Oct 20, 2009 / FW/ — A high concept show that actually showed wearable clothes, the 36º by Sara Coleman Spring 2010 collection was based on the idea of materials as the beginning and end of a process.
Sara Coleman went on farther by saying, “Through them we work on our ideas, and with them we learn about ourselves. We shape the materials and ourselves with them,” philosophizing that the wearer is one with the clothes.
The symbolism begins with the knot, which is transformed into a web of confusion, feelings and ideas, which in turn are interwoven.
Using threads of silk, cotton and linen, which are hand-combined using the loom and our own hands, fabric was formed with a rustic drop. Textures are combined to create contrast with the softness of the crepes and silk gauzes, which are then made into trousers, dresses and tops.
Sara Coleman, fashion and fabric designer and a professor at the Felicidad Duce Advanced School of Design and Fashion, began her education with the Plastic Arts applied to Fashion Design (Advanced Technician in Plastic Arts and Clothing Design).
She then continued her studies on Pattern-making and Scaling Technique, and earned a Master’s Degree in Fashion Management and Experimental Fashion Illustration at Central St. Martins.
