The first model strides along the catwalk to ethereal sounds of electronic music. If the guests weren't already on the edge of their seats, they are now. 29-year-old Vanessa Schindler, a Geneva University of Art and Design graduate who has trained with the likes of Balenciaga and Henrik Vibskov, brings together flowing fabrics such as velvet or chiffon with loose-knit material, ornaments and elements made from polymer. In doing so, she breaks away from the two-dimensionality of textiles. Cut-outs, transparency and structure also add movement and exciting details to her works. 'I'm interested in frozen liquidity', explained the designer from the French-speaking part of Switzerland at the Festival in Hyères. Vanessa Schindler says that in her creations she aims to break out of the supposedly natural characteristics and present something totally new. And in this she certainly succeeds: everything seems to flow. On this morning, Schindler presents three-dimensional artworks which combine organic elements with architectural linearity, while always remaining distinctively feminine. The collection not only demonstrates a keen instinct for design, but above all quality and Zeitgeist. The audience is enthusiastic.
