This cashmere coat is part of a knitwear collection designed for the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising Debut Fashion Show. This garment is a one of a kind design, a fully fashioned knit piece, made on a single bed hand knitting machine with some crochet detail around the waist and the sleeves. The fabric was hand painted with acid dye to give it a more precise gradient effect. The eccentric yet elegant design, forms shapes like origami around the body. The sculptural look was achieved to give a different look from every angle.

Since the inspiration is the Mannerism artist's approach, she did several explorations using shirts to create her own design. This process led her to create the collection that looks artistitc but still wearable. Through the shirts explorations, she found several interesting details and applied these elementsts to the silhouette, construction, and prints of the clothes. Also she did some collage becuase it reminds her of Mannerism art as well. The collage technique led her understand and create new structure of the garments.
Kilt Cult is a fashion collection created by designer Fernanda Bueno for FEMMAN, her upcoming brand whose motto is to disseminate what she calls freestyle fashion. The collection, created following a study developed by Bueno during graduation, merges Brazilian and Celtic cultures and relies on striking prints, vibrant colors and genderless modeling, and builds upon a belief that clothes have no gender, sexual orientation, age or race. Wearing Kilt Cult means saying no to standardized thought and welcoming with open arms the idea of being whoever you want to be.
This collection, Loom Loop tried to integrate the core feminine look combined with the tailoring structure. It features strongly on prints inspired by the story. The colour palette is a juxtaposition of this legend story with burgundy and dark forest colour. The butterfly motif provides a focus on prints; Loom Loop favours both the all in one look in the same print and the mixing of the prints.
The Ficedula Parva collection is inspired by the colour palette of the Red-breasted Flycatcher. It is made of organic cotton, organic linen and recycled yarn. The textile print is handmade by the designer. By choosing materials that are produced in a way that is gentle to nature, by using high quality materials that last longer, and by creating classic designs that can be used for more than one season, the Ficedula Parva collection has its place in HEKNEs greater design concept where every collection carries the colours of one selected bird.
