Holiday in Raveland
Holiday in Raveland is a collection inspired by the world of free parties, the latest counterculture, the alternative lifestyle of ravers. I find very interesting how this subculture has managed to reach our time and how through music has established itself towards the end of the 80s a creative drive that unites thousands of people of different cultures, and ethnicities, with different thoughts and styles, all united to dance to the sound of techno and acid house that free them from the grip of time, distorting its reality.
The collection approaches this reality by exploiting the concept of transe as a modification of consciousness, formed by the union of music and dance that together with ecstasy contribute to the achievement of a state of euphoria and an intensification of the sensory experience.
Holiday in Raveland includes 20 outfits that blend the different styles in rave culture: punk, the hardcore/gabber scene and the travellers' scene.
in the first part of the project I took care of the image of the designer Luca opini, using an esthetic that totally represents his style with strong and marked lines and strong colors. In the second part of the project I studied the image of his collection "holiday in reveland" that takes inspiration to the world of raver and to the trance concept as an alteration of the consciousness made of the union of dance and music. There are references to Mustoid waste company, "artistic collective" cyber punk, and to the hardcore/gabbar and punk scene. For these reasons I decided to create his communication with fluid, soft and crumbling lines with constrasts and intense colors that reflects his concept and his imaginary.
I'm Silvia Occhiato, I live in Vanzaghello, a town an hour away from Milan. I didn't remember accurately when my passion in fashion began, it has always been my dream since I was young. Certainly after I studied fashion in high school I have never doubted about my university career. In Naba I understood that I am interested in the world of "styling and communication" that I choose during in my second year, I hope to keep accomplishing it after my university career.
