Cabin Fever at ERKI Moeshow

Cabin Fever at ERKI Moeshow, the event

In 2011, I was invited to ERKI Fashion Show, an insane event for EKA (prev ERKI) students that started in 1982, has now become one of the most popular and craziest fashion art events in Estonia.

Cabin Fever at ERKI Moeshow, the collection

Iqôn In Cabin Fever is an Unique pieces Collection based on up-cycled leather left overs, Vintage recycled and Crochet patchwork.

This Fall- Winter collection inspired by a journey in Kiev with Russian photographer Daria Marchik to participate in the Gogol festival and by the meeting of the Russian top model Danila Polyakov, the icon of crazy and melancholic fashion. Iqôn in Cabin fever is a proposition of the mixture of icons religious and pop icons. Cabin fever is the title of a piece of Brian Jonestown Massacre, the feeling of claustrophobia and cutting off on itself.

Cabin Fever at ERKI Moeshow put in perspective of this game of images, and the iconoclastic conflict. The attention on detail, simplicity of the port and bearing, casualness and humor.

The paradox between the peace and the internal light appropriate for the icon,  that is appropriate for every person, and its confrontation with the outside which sometimes confines him in a kind of madness of inadequacy.  The uniqueness of the icon and its work handmade in a workshop is a reference for the realization of unique pieces in the fashion.
