Fashion & Style: More and more designers are turning to technology to tell their story. Although she only has two seasons under her belt, Haleh Nematzadeh decided to create a full music video to show her clothes, rather than the traditional runway show.
Entitled "The Faithless will Never Tell This Tale," the collection is a story about adventure and fearless explorers, who sport Nematzadeh signature high fashion meets street style aesthetic. Backed by a sound track by Jeffrey and Eric Tonnesen of defftonn, the collection seamlessly blends rock and roll with couture.
"The collection illustrates the process of alchemy, the exploration through which our darkest fears can transmute to our greatest power," Nematzadeh said.
Inspired by autobiographical elements as well as Medieval, Military, Underground, the film "Where the Wild Things Are", Heavy Metal, and explorers such as Indiana Jones, and Joan of Arc, the collection utilizes a variety of luxe materials in innovative combinations including real and faux stretch leather, deerskin and sulfur wash cotton stretch twill, high-end fur textures such as goat hair, Mongolian lamb, raccoon shearling and fringe sequins.
In keeping with the focus on recycling, the collection is designed to rework and reimagine existing closets.
