"I am everyday inspired by people’s thoughts and different ways of processing emotions and situations as well as my own. My interests lie in aiming to understanding how the human mind and our emotions work and translating that into fashion through garments.
Choosing what you wear is a choice that comes from within; therefore fashion should celebrate not only diversity ‘on the outside’ but also diversity within ‘minds’.
Your way of thinking, of feeling, of processing emotions is what makes you yourself, unique and different from everyone else around you.
What’s inside your mind?
What are you feeling?
Feel differently, it’s a strength!" Alice Firman
Alice Firman's graduate collection from The ECA Fashion Show was inspired by Peter Lindbergh's film 'The Heist' and utilised techniques of male tailoring to create a strong independent look that also appears feminine. Alice used lace which she deconstructed into individual flowers before reconstructing it with hand stitching and combining it with hand printed, laser cut petals. This creates a combination of dark structure with more organic feminine form breaking through.
