Interview with extraordinary Eva Jacobs

FashionMag42 proudly presents an interview with extraordinary Eva Jacobs

How would you describe your design aesthetic?
Strong, structured feminine shapes powered by a dark endeavour.

Where do you go for inspiration?
Art galleries, museums, theatre, everyday life situations.

How does that inspiration turn into reality?
At first, by collecting the inspirational pieces into a sketchbook, to note down the thought process behind your designs and start off with primarily sketches. Sketchbook also helps to define the best techniques to achieve the desired silhouettes, shapes and textures, as you have the creative freedom to experiment and record it all at one place of reference. It then translates into a more precise theme, normally expressed through a mood-board, which steers the whole designing process into a very specific direction. The designs are then transformed from pencil sketches into CAD design illustrations and developed digitally for the sample cutting. Sample cutting is by far one of the most demanding and influential stages of the garment making, as it determines the exact fit and plasticity of your collection. Once the samples are completed up to standards, they can be translated into a collection using the desired materials.

How would you describe your personal fashion style?
It’s a form of Alice from Resident Evil at night, and Olivia Pope at day. I love a good tailored suit for the everyday look, or a minimalistic slick outfit matched with a classic trench coat, pair of heels and a tote bag. I do feel the most comfortable wearing something well fitted and black, as it’s like a second skin to me.

Can you tell us about your Spring 2016 collection?
The collection will present more interchangeable wardrobe pieces: tops and trousers, skirts, sculpted two piece suits, as well as the transformative day-to-evening dresses. The print décor and textured detailing is enthused with the East Asian inspirations.

What’s next for you professionally?
To explore the new market selling overseas, as well as introducing the in-between seasons ‘pre-collections’ that are more accessible casual-wear based.

    EACH YEAR, THE ZFF’S HASHTAG # SECTION SHINES A SPOTLIGHT ON A HIGHLY TOPICAL ISSUE. THIS YEAR’S HASHTAG SIDEBAR, #GETUPSTANDUP, IS DEDICATED TO THOSE PEOPLE WHO RAISE THEIR VOICES AGAINST PREVAILING CONVENTIONS AND DRAW ATTENTION TO WRONGDOINGS. ONE OF THE HIGHLIGHTS IS THE DOCUMENTARY FILM THE DISSIDENT BY ACADEMY AWARD WINNER BRYAN FOGEL ABOUT THE MURDER OF JAMAL KHASHOGGI, WHICH WILL BE SHOWN AS AN INTERNATIONAL PREMIERE.

In what guises is resistance to be found? What does it mean to carry such responsibility to those who stand up? And how does that impact on their surroundings? “It doesn’t matter if it’s Climate Youth, Black Lives Matter or the Women’s Strike, mass demonstrations have become a defining phenomenon of the present times,” said Artistic Director Christian Jungen, and continued, “We dedicate this section to the masterminds behind resistance.” This is the third time since 2018 that the ZFF has implemented its Hashtag # section. This year is dedicated to people, movements and groups who “stand up” in order to bring about change – rules and conventions are being challenged, be it on a global, personal or...
