Experimental Clothing Collection
Moholy‑Nagy University of Art and Design Budapest
Nelli Nógrádi is interested in experimental ways of modeling fabric, and has used them to create a new collection of clothing. She draws from the inspiration that would strike anyone upon seeing Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia. She used the heat treatment method; in addition to making desirable changes to the surface structure of the fabric, it causes a local “contraction” of the material, and consequently changes the form of the clothing. The difficulty of the design is in the knowledgeable use of experience gathered in laborious experiments. The designer applied this knowledge not only in the decorative finishings of the outfits, but above all, in modeling the clothing. The accessories (shoes and bracelets) were designed by Laura Papp.
