Working on the cutting edge of contemporary fashion, not to mention unafraid of dealing with some difficult questions that sit at the very heart of his practice (fashion is, after all not just about the clothes), young fashion designerMatija Čop is definitely going to prove to be a name to remember in the coming years. Born and raised inCroatia, before turning to the world of fashion, he was a national champion in athletics and a student of Croatian language and literature. Currently a graduate student of fashion design of the Faculty of Textile Technology in Zagreb, Čop combines a conceptual approach with a more intuitive hands-on working method, depending on the nature of each project and what he wants to achieve each time. Less focused on how groundbreaking or provocative his garments could be, instead, he turns his attention to the role fashion (including fashion makers) plays in its wider socio-cultural context.

Today, after spending a few months in Sweden researching an approach to fashion design that seeks to create ”fashion without clothing,” Čop is presently involved in a new project leading him in new directions. Though reluctant to reveal any more detail about his current undertakings, the 27-year-old designer was very generous in answering the following questions for us, thereby offering us a broader look into his work and design philosophy.

Barbara Rosén (from Sweden) lives and works in Stockholm, painting primarily in oil and acrylic. The works presented in this exhibition have been inspired by London’s modern neighbourhoods such as the City of London and Docklands. She needed to channel her strong experiences from exciting architecture and magnificence of the areas where she has worked and sometimes lived as well, concentrated in high-rise buildings. She has built up the composition as a synthesis of many images. She wanted to bring out the mysterious and contradictory by using warm and clear colours. What particularly captured her attention was the impact of the sunset on the townscape and its reflections on glass, concrete and steel facades of high rises. The works come from her collection “Sun and the City” which is one of her collections inspired by high-rises of cities of the World.

Barbara Roséis exhibiting in LANDSCAPE; RURAL VS URBAN at The Brick Lane Gallery - The Annexe from 4th - 14th September 2014. To find out more about LANDSCAPE; RURAL VS URBAN or to exhibit in a future exhibition please email info@thebricklanegallery.com
