Tina Elisabeth Reiter
THE SOUND OF HOMELESS(NESS) AW 12/13
COLLECTION OF THE YEAR: MENSWEAR 2012
THE SOUND OF HOMELESS(NESS) is Tina Elisabeth Reiter’s final collection of the Master’s Degree Fashion Design & Technology: menswear course at London College of Fashion.
After the Austrian born and raised fashion designer showed her post-graduate Diploma collection (Dipl.) in the international show at London Graduate Fashion Week 2010, Tina was invited to join the course and awarded the prestigious Harold Tillman scholarship.
Participating with THE SOUND OF HOMELESS(NESS) at MA_12 exhibition & POEMTRY catwalk show at the V&A, she is nominated for the menswear collection of the year award, which she finally received.
Inspired by the feeling of homelessness, its contemporary meaning of belonging-to and the seeking of your roots in our unpredictable globalised world.
The collection has taken the heritage of the Austrian folk costume including its tradition and fused it with aesthetics of modern menswear. Extracting traditional techniques and silhouettes fitting it into a contemporary context is her unique way of staying true to your own roots.
Nourished by the wish of an ideal world which is forever connected with the myth of the alps, the kitschy homeland movies of the Austrian postwar years and the world famous musical ‘The Sound of Music’.
