Watch Our Steps is organized by SLEM, a new education center focused on shoe design.
The shoes are extreme and made with the latest technology like the 3d printer and new materials. Combining the extreme design with the technology creates a strange and innovative design. Surrealism in this signal fits my previous trend Funtasia. Technology takes the upper hand in the fashion world. If you don’t use the new technology in your designs you’re probably not going to make a succesful career. Designers have never deviated so far from reality. Would the extreme designs also be seen in the street fashion in the future and not just on the catwalk?
