The Theme – HUNT OR BE HUNTED
The day kicked off at 10am with the unveiling of this year’s Haunt Couture theme, HUNT OR BE HUNTED. Each Team had the opportunity to choose a Tarot Card from one of the four categories: Water, Air, Mountain or Forrest. These Tarot Card represented the team’s assignment and a different mythical creature from folklore or legend. With just 15 minutes to brainstorm their garment’s vision, teams then embarked on a thrilling fabric grab. Our fabric sponsors, including Arc-Com, Bernhardt, Concertex, Designtex, HBF, Knoll, Kvadrat, Luum, Martin Brattrud, Maharam, Momentum and Pallas provided an impressive array of textile cuttings for participants to draw inspiration from.
Once the fabric grab was complete, teams, each consisting of 5 A+D Firm Members + 1 Sponsor, were released to construct their garments. Teams worked together to creatively design and build their garments.
At 5pm, all teams had their outfits photographed and collected. They will not gain access to their creations until the night they walk the runway at Haunt Couture, on Thursday, October 26th. Mark your calendars and prepare for a spectacular evening!
