Still a fashion design student, Miomir Jelcic is already creating quite the stir in the fashion industry with his “UTAB” collection. An acronym for the “ugly truth about beauty”, this collection certainly has a powerful meaning behind it. Inspired by those who have been victims of plastic surgery, or for those who don’t believe in their own beauty and allow society to control them, you can look at these designs and feel something beyond just the artistic brilliance; you can see a powerful message. In particular, you’ll notice numerous pieces are held together by what looks like metal clasps. There are also numerous pieces that quite clearly resemble bandages, and everything appears very structural and stiff, in comparison to free flowing and organic, perhaps representing the rigid nature of plastic surgery. Regardless of what this young designer was thinking while designing, one thing is for certain: this collection can give us all some ideas to think over.
