Jun Nakamura is completing his Masters’ programme in Fashion Design Womenswear at the Istituto Marangoni School of Fashion in London. His training path is dotted with interesting intuitions. His far-sighted imagination has led him through the discovery of juxtaposition and original shape making techniques. This has offered him the opportunity to develop a highly individual, personal practice as a future fashion designer.
In his final dissertation project, Jun proposed new ways of using shibori in contemporary fashion as a strategy to preserve endangered cultural craft. Based on the concept of ‘Transgression’, his SINN 2018 F/W collection was unquestionably outstanding and the accompanying masters dissertation has also attracted interest from several publishers. Jun was selected for the Mittelmoda 2018 competition, showing his collection as a finalist in Italy.
The Sinn 2018 Fall-Winter collection is inspired by abstract arts, namely the Japanese traditional shibori technique, which he has used to create shapes. The association of discordant materials and subsequent incorporation of printed fabrics used in a genuinely innovative way results in a balanced yet daring blend of soft flexible fabrics vs structural materials such as leather on the tailoring structure, with shiny materials and boundary-breaking elements such as lace, feathers and pleated stripes providing the strategic deconstruction effect.
