Vineta

Sarah Frede

For my BA collection, I took inspiration from the legend of VINETA, a mythical city that is drowned in the Baltic Sea. Because of their blasphemous way of life, the Vinetans were punished by a flood which took the city to the bottom of the seabed. I speculate about the Outfits they are wearing, inspired by marine life and traditional fishermen workwear. Many of the deep sea creatures have a gelatinous, translucent texture and rough surfaces alternate with soft. There is a ghostly aesthetic to this world, both repulsive and beautiful; like the jellyfish that are living in it.
