MODE SUISSE & FRIENDS 2023, ZURICH

On 4th September 2023, Mode Suisse celebrated its format Mode Suisse & Friends in the foyer of the Chipperfield building at the Kunsthaus Zürich. In two separate shows, the presentation of the latest juried Swiss fashion labels was extended by looks from our Friends from local retail boutiques, fashion schools and young and established brands. In addition, participants showed their collections in the accompanying showroom and shop. Mode Suisse is also delighted to honour MOURJJAN as the second winner of the MIELE x MODE SUISSE AWARD FOR POSITIVE IMPACT. Moreover, «ADAPT by SPF» was shown at Mode Suisse & Friends – a pioneering capsule collection developed with the Swiss Paraplegic Foundation for wheelchair users.

SHOW ONE

Fashion School DOING FASHION Basel, ICDP HGK FHNW (friend) kicked off tonight’s first show with the creations of 16 Master and Bachelor students. Questioning the status quo of fashion by asking how the industry can coordinate aesthetic and circular methods, participating students were the following: Albertine Milani, Charlotte Christen, Andreas Belsener and Florian Kech for Collective MVS, Reto Emmenegger and Samanta Graber for EMMBER, Ezra Ackermann, Feyza Hylal, Gioch-P. Treskatsch, Jerome Rafael, Lou Gattlen, Marie Valentina Klock, Naomé Nazire Tahmaz, Rachel Bühler, Selina Rotach, Seraina Kick. Next up was one of this year’s three newcomers DANZ (juried label) whose collection «If you don’t let us dream we won’t let you sleep» represented the label’s speciality: colorful and bold handmade screen-printed fabrics. Sewing Partner BERNINA (friend) teamed up with upcycling designer Rafael Kouto, a known associate of Mode Suisse, to create the sustainable collection «A drop of sunshine». The open-source patterns to sew at home were followed by the disco fairytale creations of Sarah Bounab (juried label). The evening wardrobe, reflecting the label’s specific futuristic and glamorous utopian manner, included eyewear from Swiss label VIU. Atelier 1985 (friend) showed exclusive limited Mode Suisse edition pieces as well as timeless, non-seasonal designs. The looks, inspired by an old family album from the late ’80s, were followed by Louis Origine’s (friend) collection «Amode» — an exploration of traditional Japanese weaving and Italian sartorial tradition. KAZU (juried label) closed tonight’s first show with the label’s essence of creating contemporary fashion from traditional Japanese textiles. Selected pieces will also be displayed in the upcoming exhibition «KIMONO – Kyoto to Catwalk» at Museum Rietberg.

The opening of the second show was performed by the Swiss Paraplegic Foundation showing «ADAPT by SPF», a pioneering capsule collection featuring clothing designed for wheelchair users.

Designer Roland Rahal also is the recipient of the second MIELE x MODE SUISSE AWARD FOR POSITIVE IMPACT for «Mourjjan4Children»: The project stands out for its social commitment by offering traumatised children from Lebanon, Palestine and Syria, amongst other places, a three-week educational program in southern Lebanon.

For the runway BONGÉNIE GRIEDER (friend) paired the store’s seasonal selection with bags by Geneva-based brand WORN (friend). Tonight’s second show concluded with newcomer Anastasia Bull’s (juried label) collection «Where the sirens meet for tea» showing an imaginary take on contrasts with soft, shiny fabrics and sharp silhouettes.
