Art, technology & the body through mediums of fashion & textiles.
Experimental clothing line with an edge and an individual twist encompassing history of dress and its interpretation through unusual woven/knitted/printed materials.
July 2012 gave birth to WEARAPHILIA by MAGDA DURKA – creative, wearable, technology inspired garments/textiles design philosophy, featured on SilkFred as an unique fashion boutique.
I pursue my fascination with synthetic materials through weave and knit merging them with most responsive natural fibres. Extreme opposites are infused with movement and interaction. Vibrating layers, pleated folds and lightweight understructures are geometrically and organically tailored together into interactive interfaces. Science and technology via the medium of the body, the artificial and the natural.
Most of the pieces can be worn as separates, while others only work with accompanying them layered understructures.
I am constantly exploring new avenues of thought, designing and bringing new pieces as I go along.
Be hip, be fun, explore, stand out from the crowd, enter the WEARAPHILIA.
Wear it, feel it, indulge yourself in it!
My designs are dedicated to any Wearaphiliacs who would like to wear them.
