Kikas' defensive dress code

Ragne Kikas is the gifted Estonian designer based in
Hamburg, Germany, who's making a name for herself
after she won hands down the Première Vision Prize
at latest Hyères International Festival of Fashion and 
Photography with gripping knitted pieces from her
graduation collection she aptly called ”Dress Code
Defensive” being inspired by 16th century armors.

For two consecutive years Première Vision partnered
with Hyères Festival to strenghten the link between
fashion professionals while supporting young design
talents in forging direct contacts with exhibiting
manufacturers. That's the reason why Ragne's
knitwear collection will be showcased to North
America's professionals at the upcoming 
Première Vision Preview in New York.

Ragne graduated from Hamburg's University of Applied
Sciences with an MA degree in fashion design, of course
focused on knitwear, developing her sculptured pieces.
The collection which was selected among ten proficient
finalists, is set to an almost black palette showing pleated
and patterned knits that skillfully interpret the stiff, 
angular shapes of the old coats of mail.
A modern twist on an old theme.
