Spring/Summer 2018 - ‘MEXICO’
Liselore Frowijn was one of the selected designers by TRANOÏ to show at Palais de la Bourse on Tuesday afternoon October 2nd. The designer sent us a humanitarian message with her show: NO WALL WILL STOP US TO CREATE.
Twenty energetic looks where shown on the gallery’s damier floor where Liselore Frowijn’s daring universe was fully immersed with the upright columns: freedom can be a powerful tool of independence.
FROWIJN took us on a dry archeological journey deep into Mexico, reminding us all of the vibrant country’s overpowering beauty. She referred to the Maya’s ancestral culture and took references from nature, buildings and pyramids for their size and decoration. She used hope as the weapon for creation; the rotatory printed cactus created in collaboration with graphic designer Michiel Schuurman literally symbolizes this hope.
