Katie Holmes’ graduate collection concept started with British rebellion in fashion during the ’80s after a long period of rioting and rebellion in Britain. The Buffalo collective was made up of photographers, designers and artists. The disruptive and radical movement transformed the way that society absorbed fashion with a pioneering style, showing new masculine identities that became one of the most influential of the decade. The creative group included Ray Petri, Jamie Morgan and other members from a diverse range of backgrounds. The word Buffalo itself was a Caribbean expression adopted by Petri, used to describe rude boys and rebels.
Sabrina explores the vitality of different cultures through following collections. Above all, the experimental attitude is at the core of all she does, which is not only manifested in the patterns and silhouette, but also in the attempt to challenge the gender stereotypes. The opulent patterns can still be masculine, and femininity and strength coexist.
With the aim to reproduce the conflicting, a little mysterious feel of the process while diverse cultures confront and integrate, Sabrina deconstructed and reassembled art paintings to create daring and unique patterns, and accentuated the contrast with Jewish traditional clothing-inspired clean-cut silhouette.
