Eva Lili Bartha in collaboration with GABBA
Lili’s mission as a designer is to show that clothing is much more than a materialistic item of consumerism but rather as a tool used to communicate. With this project, which was in collaboration with GABBA, she wanted to tell the story of the development of denim in an industrial scenario.
By visualizing the diverse processes and methods used to create our usual denim pieces, denim becomes more, it becomes alive. Lili’s designs on this particular project are embodiment of GABBA’s dedication to this remarkable material and iconic style.
The designs by Lili, through the use of expressive prints and contrasting colour combinations, reflects on the status of nowadays smart fashion. They are full of strong expressions and innovative technology, inviting the audience to interact with the looks, and get to know them better. Lili integrates technology as warning elements which creates a play between garments to wear, and technology to fear.
