Mariana Jungmann FW 2016/17 at BFW

Mariana Jungmann takes inspiration by the works of  Mexican artist Frida Kahlo and sculptor Monica Piloni for her latest A/W 16/17 collection “Deshecho”.

Just like the two Latin artists, a strong yet unsettling aesthetic is playfully reworked  by Jungmann into something beautifully unexpected.

Jungmann’s way of using very feminine design alongside traditional tailoring techniques  ties into a contemporary, unorthodox way.

Embroidered dresses, contrasting textures and sophisticated detailing bring the Mexican heritage to life in voluminous skirts and non-traditional ponchos.

A strong feature on all of her collections is the use of  handmade renaissance lace, which for this show was showered with over ten thousand hand embroidered Swarovski crystals.
