International Student Design Competition: Real Leather. Stay Different. This collection revolves around a conversation that intertwines hyper-masculinity with hyper-femininity. Inspired by the women of the bauhaus; Gertrud Anrdt, Anni Albers and Gunta Stölzl - whom of which the collection is named after. Their textile work is juxtaposed against the queer leather scene. This is a collection about women wanting to be equal to their male counterparts, and men being allowed to be feminine. Community and craft is at the heart of this collaboration and like the manifesto of the bauhaus, this collection is too, gender ambiguous. Leather will be re-imagined by weaving together a narrative, utilising zero waste pattern cutting methods, leaving behind little no leather or hide waste.
