Stefan Eckert
German haute couture fashion label Stefan Eckert enlisted the help of motion-graphics designer Tim Jockel to create one of the most incredible fashion shows I’ve ever seen.

According to Jockel’s Vimeo account:

The question was how to communicate the philosophy behind the new collection of German “Haute Couture” fashion designer Stefan Eckert in a better way. The answer was the world’s first complete 3D holographic fashion show. I teamed up with director Florian Sigl to create the visual concept for the show and how to express the collection within this special medium as best as possible. After shooting with a high speed camera I did all stages of post production, from 3D to motion graphics to compositing.
The result was one of the biggest holographic projections ever which creates a complete optical illusion and breaks the rules of time and space on stage.

Couture Spring 2011 Christian Dior

Christian Dior


Valentino – The departure from the recent to old school was unexpected but not as interesting as it could have been. The pizzazz wasn’t there, and neither was my beloved Valentino red (two pieces do not please a customer base).

Jean Paul Gaultier – Amazepants. JPG used throwback numbering cards like the RTW (ready to wear) I built my love for fashion on. Killer.

Elie Saab – Not one misstep. A collection that screams Megan Fox – in a good way.

Givenchy – Samurai meets Geisha. Hats are unwearable brilliance.

Chanel – Oi vey, Anja and Freja did not look like their beautiful selves. Was it the unadventurous and unflattering collection? Not sure – it wasn’t offensive, but it was disappointing.

Christian Dior – THIS IS COUTURE. The colour nuances alone…I mean…Dior never fails. Left typeless.

Alexis Mabille – A bit ready-to-wear for my taste, but I would not kick a single piece out of bed. Clean statement.

Armani Prive – On first glance, I hated it. Then I remembered this is haute couture, and realised this is exactly what future fashion has been asking for. Structure, fabric, and texture are all genius, but the leggings must go.
