Marcel Ostertag’s show was immediately unique in that there was no music incorporated in the show, only speech excerpts from Emma Watson when she spoke at the UN and “A Time For Choosing” by Ronald Reagan.
These excerpts about feminism and equality were used as an empowering force, meant to have the show watcher think about the words while appreciating the pro-feminine looks. His use of metallic and monochrome colors along with sheer fabric made for looks that might become the new trends of 2017/2018.
“The revolution of Marcel Ostertag takes place in reducing speed. Due to the fast pace of today's society, you lose the appreciation for a single piece of clothing. The harmony between tradition, modernity, extravagance, and wearabiliy was acheived through the slowing down of the process. The delicate silk materials are ornamented with softly swaying volants and a wonderful flower print in different color variations. The somber and heavy elements of the masculine-inspired coats are interrupted by swinging dresses and draped silk pieces. Thistle is delicately embroidered on cashmere and loaden, with the flower symbolizing revolution. Being beautiful and indestructible at the same time is the message of Ostertag's collection.”
