Dark Crystals

Julie Eilenberger

Sometimes I wish us mortals could be blessed with the powers of omnipresence. It could really have come in handy during Berlin Fashion Week, as when I was riding bikes at Bread & Butter, 24 year old Julie Eilenberger from Denmark, was showing her magnificent galactic science fiction meets real life collection. I was going to say it’s her graduate collection, but she’s actually got two more years to go before she graduates. But before I go off sulking about our lack of theological rankings (it’s so hard being human isn’t it?) I thought I might share with you some pieces from her collection and a short interview the lovely lady….

Me: What’s the story behind this collection?
Julie Eilenberger: Its inspired by early science fiction, such as Kubrick´s 2001 - Space Odyssey, Barbarella and Logan’s run. I’m always inspired by ( old ) movies and begin my collections on my couch with my tv and pen ‘n’ paper. So the outfits are somewhat futuristic but with a feeling of history to.
Me: Sounds like my kind of evening… How did you get those shoulders? Amazing!
Julie: The exaggerated shoulders and the corsage is made by foam, which I cut out with a scissor, ( yes it took forever and I was actually blue inside my hand.. ) the rest is mainly made by chiffon and jersey, all covered with a universe print. The black crystals I got sponsored from Swarovski, and they fit perfectly into my theme.
