Graduation collection:

PASTPREPOST: A WALK TO

THE END OF BORDERLINE

 

Vika Mozhaeva’s graduation collection is inspired by a hypothetical post-human future where we will be completely integrated with technology, whilst having forgotten the functionality of objects from the past that we cherish as trophies. In this apocalyptic setting everything is possible; the gender and age issues, for example, are completely outdated and the most important thing is to survive in harsh outdoor conditions. “I’ve always wondered why the post-apocalyptic world is presented as something dusty and melancholic. Why can it not be modern and futuristic and at the same time in strong connection with the past?”
