FANNI LÁSZLÓ obtained her BA degree in textile design at Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in 2021 and she currently is an MA student at the same university. Her designs reflect upon the contemporary challenges of the fashion industry from viral fashion to changing statement pieces and AI influences in classical garment making. Her creations are inspired by a strong and specific persona, the gorgeous weirdo, a creature challenging the prompts of generative artificial intelligence. She is a member of the young designers’ collective Terike from Budapest.
I was inspired by Hungarian art after 1945, highlighting the work of Dezső Korniss with a special focus on the “Tücsöklakodalom”. I studied the abstract metamorphosis and anthropomorphic formations of Korniss’s works. The concept of the collection was to mix and reinterpret trash culture and the aesthetic elements of the Y2K era, along with the abstractions. During the design process, I used a variety of technological solutions, including materials made with sublimation printing with my pattern designs. The entire collection is seasonless, the collection is a mixture of different material pairings and silhouettes that create a “weird” effect. I used the same patterns in several ways, including two jacquard and relief patterns. Simple silhouettes are typical to the collection, emphasizing the patterns and different textures.
