Martijn van Strien!

The Land of Cockaigneis a mythical land of plenty, an imaginary place of extreme luxury from medieval tales. Martijn van Strien, graduate of Design Academy Eindhoven and constant experimentator, sought for inspiration in paintings depicting European kings and nobles of the era from the Dark Ages through to the Age of Enlightenment. Extravagance and splendour of handcrafted materials and exaggerated silhouettes were the starting point for working on his own fabrics. Take a look at "ode to one of histories’ most luxurious fashion eras".

3D-Printed Pump

Pavla Podsednikova's idea was to become a reality, the Instant Shoe would do away with all of this sizing nonsense. Consider the number of times that you've been caught between models of high heels or loafers, either because they fail to match the length, the width or the general shape of your feet. This concept solves the problem.

What this designer proposed in her thesis is the possibility that consumers could have the exact forms of their tootsies mapped out by footwear manufacturers and have custom sizes made just for them. With this might come the freedom to tweak styles as well, offering men and women completely unique pieces.

Inspired by the technologies of ABS vacuum shaping, 3D printing and carbon fiber lamination, the Instant Shoe is an exciting proposal that would revolutionize the fashion industry.

Nika Danielska

Macabre in style and sharp in design, these fetish fashion designs by Nika Danielska feature skeletal cages that constrict and contort the body for the sake of fashion.

Face masks, neck braces and shoulder spikes make up this daring collection, blurring the lines between pain and couture with their frightening demeanor. The spindly creations can be worn peeking out from underneath a jacket, or on top of a gorgeous gown, both ways making for some eye-popping fashion statements that are sure to be the talk of any gathering. These intricately wrought pieces are lavish enough to be worn instead of other accessories and jewels, but they would also look glamorously Gothic when paired with some sparkly baubles.
