Zarah Ahmed was first inspired to design her collection 'HYPER BODY', after happening upon British artist Jenny Saville's styled paintings of voluminous nude bodies. It was from there that she started to reflect on her own body image and attitudes to bigger bodies within wider society. Body positivity and fat-shaming is only now becoming an important issue in fashion. To put her own individual spin on the topic, Zarah took inspiration from artists, like Ernesto Neto, that interpreted the body into bulbous fleshy sculptural artworks. Inspired by the conceptual artworks, she worked with experimental materials like sponge, latex and beads, to create her own 3D and 2D artworks.

ALL OR NOTHING graduate collection was inspired by Zlata’s experience in the UK where she had to either make it or go back home. To show her values and heritage Zlata used the Russian language to express the notion of ALL OR NOTHING, which translates as ВСЁ ИЛИ НИЧЕГО.

The silhouette and gender-neutral designs were inspired and developed through the exploration of kimono, a traditional Japanese garment. The notion of Eastern pattern cutting was explored and compared to the Western approach. Creating the space between the body and garment allowed the wearer to move and interact with the garments.

Different forms of body adornment, such as tattoos, piercings, cosmetic enhancements, and other modifications, have had cultural significance since humans began learning a language and using tools, and its significance is still apparent today as symbols of identity. Zo herself has been practising modifications since she was younger, as it is a significant cultural practice in her community.
