This exhibition presents two fashion collections by designer Iva Pfeiffer, Revolution, Adaptation, Resolution and Fall 2017, which was shown during New York Fashion Week. Includes designer’s talk about her philosophy, journey and the fashion industry. Witness Iva Pfeiffer’s work evolve through these two different but similarly inspired collections of fashion and art. 

Revolution, Adaptation, Resolution
The first is a deeply moving and stirring picture of the stories of one of the world’s most marginalized and misunderstood groups – refugees. In this collection, the body is the canvas and the clothing the art. It strives to capture and show the experiences and emotions of forced migrants from Asia and the Middle East. 

Fall 17
The second collection is an evolution of that preoccupation with Asia, contrasting the first with a more conservative Western perspective of the Orient with ready-to-wear fashion sensibilities. 

Refugees are coming from East to West. They are affecting our lives, we are affecting them. A mix of cultures, designs and styles. The Fall 17 collection is the result of mixture of styles. Pearls and camel hair are typical for East but used for westernized style of garment.
