Neo-Nomad, influenced by ecology and globalization, refers to classic design and functionality, bringing a touch of ethnicity aesthetics.
The silhouette, details and structure of these outfits draw inspiration from historical folk costumes. I used revitalization technique and new bio fabric in the base. The collections explore aesthetic territory at the intersection of old traditional textile techniques such as cut-out layering, ornamental embroidery, ethnic patterning and patchwork.
The Neo-Nomad collection includes techniques such as nuno-felting, boro and sashiko embroidery, furriery and goldsmithing, graffiti painting, wood carving, metal embossing, basket weaving, knitting and macrame. The new algae felted fabric has the ability to change the degree of density, and the material from the mycelium of the fungus replaces solar panels. Embossed leather is made from apple pomace.
I rethought and combined in a modern way the historical costumes of the viking, aleut, central asian nomad, bedouin, japanese fisherman, european peasant, as well as the scottish kilt, military uniform and samurai outfit.
How did you get into digital fashion?
I am a software engineer and interior designer by profession, but since childhood I have been designing clothes for paper dolls. Alteration and modeling of clothes was my hobby until I learned the basics of digital modeling. I grew up among the colorful patchwork of the steppes and mountains of Kazakhstan, so nomadism and the creation of patchwork clothes from outfits bought second-hand is my lifestyle. I consider myself a digital neo-nomad, able to create not only digital clothes, but also entire virtual worlds.
What do you like about it?Since the preservation of the environment is very important to me, with the advent of new technologies for design and visualization. I can create fashion without wasting the resources of the planet. In my digital outfits I use made-up eco-friendly fabrics that are not yet in reality: such as fish scales and fins, a mixture of seaweed with foam, or mango peel with kiwi, and I hope that in the future my ideas can come true.
What is your favourite use of digital Fashion and why?I love it when people enthusiastically wear the clothes I created, both real and virtual. I love to create a holiday extravaganza transforming people with digital design.
How do you see the future of digital fashion? I believe that in the future, AR-clothing can be worn as a hologram in everyday life.
