Last night, young Dutch fashion designer Sepehr Maghsoudi presented his new winter
collection 2012/2013 ‘Running through walls’ in the Kunstenhuis in Amsterdam.
With an eye for female curves and the use of handwork and exceptional material, such
as glass and ceramics, the collection is typically Sepehr. During a theatrical show,
which was accompanied by live opera music, the designer presented his super feminine
creations, such as long gowns of Italian silk in intense colours (emerald green,
dark blue and black), trimmed with fur, leather or lace. Each of his creations are
romantic, but reveal a dark edge.
The manner in which the designer applies glass in his new collection is highly
sophisticated and clearly refers to his Persian roots. The material emanates both a
powerful as well as a vulnerable quality. It represents the risk Sepehr dares to
take: ‘Never give up, but fight for your position’ is the motto behind this
collection. This makes ‘Running Through Walls’ a collection with a soul.
Sepehr Maghsoudi (29) made his breakthrough in 2010 after appearing on the TV series
‘Project Catwalk’ and was awarded the first Arnhem Fashion Award for Best Designer.
He made his worldwide debut in the successful TV programme MTV Sweet 16 with 150
million viewers in 49 countries.
You can check out Sepehr’s new collection on Friday January 27 during an exhibition
at the Kunstenhuis, Westergasfabriek, Polonceaukade 26-28, Amsterdam.
