"Don't touch the Geisha"

The collection presents elegant and modern pieces of garment for all kinds of occasions. Special attention has been paid to the printed details inspired by Japanese woodblock printing. You can find them on many pieces – on the front of blousons, on sash belts or on the wide seams.

“Don’t touch the Geisha” – a phrase that can often be found in Japanese streets where Geishas offer their services – has inspired a fashion design that pays tribute to this singular cultural habit.

Step 1: Textile printing

Samurai, Geisha, Kabuki-Theater, landscapes, plants or animals are only some of the motifs that were printed on fabric to found the basis of this unique collection. The designs are inspired by Nishiki-e, a type of Japanese multi-coloured woodblock printing. The patterns for the photoprint come from photos that imitate this example for Japanese art and handicraft, mixing classical themes with modern interpretations. We use fairly traded cotton and peach-satin.

Step 2: Fashion design

The printed fabrics are the heart of the fashion design. Mixed with uni coloured fabrics in red, grey and black, the prints will be completed with original, upcycled kimonos from Japan. 20 different and unique blouses, trousers, skirts, dresses and coats in wrap-over style will make you feel light and exotic.

Step 3: Fashion film

To promote the "Don't touch the Geisha" collection, we want to produce a music video with MADSIUSOVANDA's song "Blurred".

Imagine a completely white space with a white piano. Grey figures are placed in the room like antique sculptures. Only on the second look, we see that they are softly moving. Following the camera through the "exhibition", we discover colourful figures wearing the garments of the collection.
