Inspirations taken from natural world and animal ancestry enriched with tribal mystery, symbolism and alchemy are the substratum of Claudia Danna‘s vision of fashion. The collection entitled “Visions between the end and the beginning” is the transition between two dark frontiers – the darkness of vanishing and the darkness that preludes the new beginning like the metamorphosis of a chrysalis. From one side we are introduced into the dark concept of death with the dark accents and taxonomic influences. From another side the vivid accents of palette ensure us about the darkness of rebirth like the end of one stage moves to beautiful transformation of a butterfly. The dresses illustrate the armor constructions encapsulating the ethereal silk and lightweight chiffon, rigid rubber and arthropod designs outlining the mystical experience between the closing and initial point.
The collection “Visions between the end and the beginning” for Autumn/ Winter 2013-2014 was presented during the fashion week Altaroma Haute Couture . Thanks to the collection, the designer Claudia Andrea Danna became a winner of the “ Fashion Award Altieri – Best Talented Designer”.
