Presented during Berlin Fashion Week, Brazilian-born designer Mariana Jungmann’s Autumn/Winter 2016 collection took strong inspiration from her Latin roots. Influenced by Mexican artist Frida Kahlo and sculptor Monica Piloni, the designer produced a strong and beautiful aesthetic by inserting intricately laser cut patterns in a multitude of unique ways into her array. Abstract flowers floated down a navy, high collar top while a dark blue linear pattern striped the front of a burgundy midi skirt. The bib of a babydoll dress donned a circular pattern of lines as a similar graphic grazed the sides of black, loose fit leather pants. As the models effortlessly glided down the runway, we were all exposed to Jungmann’s skillful hand that seamlessly blended traditional Mexican art with feminine modernity.
