Fashion opens wide opportunities to show creators’ point of view on different problems. It is a form of reaction on various situations that happen in the world and also it is the method of communication. Nowadays fashion world becomes more socially active and openly discuss global problems. Contemporary art and fashion raises issues of social inequality, discrimination, systems and other problems. It is important to understand that all the topics that the world of art
and fashion raises now, were formed back in the early 90s, such as identity politics, globalization and digitalization, when the world began to exchange different points of views, and pluralism became the basis conception for the world of art and fashion. The development of the Art Biennale contributed
to the formation of the term «New Internationalism». Despite the seeming openness to everything, in today’s world “without borders” many people still cannot openly express their social, civic, political positions and are forced to look for metaphors, often hidden their own identity, taking the position of «inner emigration». The aim of this project is to create a fashion collection based
on the art methods and topics of «New internationalists» in art in the time period from 1990s to present days. The diploma project consist the creation of a women’s collection, which contains 7 final looks and 20 sketches. The final fashion collection is the result of a conceptual approach associated with the source
of visual research, the creation of prints, fabric materials, combining colours and creating the shape of final products based on a conception.
