snazzy osmosis

Playing with the dictionary figurative meaning of 'osmosis'
as ”the process of gradual or unconscious assimilation
of ideas and knowledge”, I dare say that what young
designer Dora Kelemen knows of innovative fashion
she learned through an osmosis made of 
full-time study and research.

Dora graduated two years ago as textile designer from
Moholy-Nagy University of Art in Budapest, Hungary,
conceiving a translucent puffy jacket for her diploma
project fully showing from the beginning her own
experimental, futuristic style worthy 
of a sci-fi movie set.

Specialized in knitting, she moved to France to have
a firsthand knowledge in industrial design at the
 Ecole de Design Atlantique in Nantes and later on 
in clothing design at Atelier Chardon Savard in Paris 
where she currently lives still working on the 
simultaneous application into textile surfaces of
translucent and transparent elements emphasizing 
the close relationship between them and the body.

Her latest capsule collection patently called 'Osmose'
shows diaphanous, architectural outfits with silk chiffon
voiles draped or rolled around in small pipes combined
with synthetic sheets or tailored suits in eye-catching
shapes and volumes smartly companioned in the
collection's loobook by modern architectures 
in the background.
