Come to the Alex Gallery, from September 16 to October 14, to experience contemporary fashion and jewelry designs from 10 top graduates of the Geneva University of Art and Design/ Haute école d’Art et de Design Genève. This institution, one of Switzerland’s most prestigious design centers, continues the Swiss search for quality which has earned the country a solid reputation for perfectly functioning and fresh design.
The collection reflects diverse design talent, with items ranging from gowns to casual wear, footwear and jewelry. These inventions play with unique materials, illustrating techniques that mix know-how and new technologies. Many of the pieces were created for big name designers including the Martin Grant fashion house in Paris and the Brazilian shoe brand, Melissa. Outfits worn by the Swiss Pavilion guides of the World Expo Shanghai will also be on display.
