|Designer, Julia Knüpfer|
ICA Watermelon will be showing at FAT Toronto as one of the featured designers on Day 2 of Natural Currencies, where sustainable fashion fuels the creativity behind fashion designs! Berlin designer, Julia Knüpfer is the talent behind ICA Watermelon and describes her clothing line as carefully handmade high fashion knit & crochet garments that work correctly in symbiosis with the green movement. I am excited for the ICA Watermelon runway show, it will be a chance to experience a taste of Berlin fashion with an ecological approach!
FAT Toronto is the perfect platform for unique designers such as Julia Knüpfer, It is not your conventional fashion week, it’s a unique festival that demonstrates an experimental approach to the fashion & arts scene. Most importantly, it is open to the public!
How did you come up with the name ICA Watermelon?
ICA Watermelon is an abbreviation for “I carried a watermelon”, the famous quote from one of my favorite movies Dirty Dancing!
Is ICA Watermelon new to the Canadian fashion scene?
It will be my first time in Canada and I am very excited to be part of FAT Toronto! I am eager to share the vision of ICA Watermelon with Canadian consumers as I really like the fact that Canada is very green conscious which works perfectly with the values of ICA Watermelon.
What is ICA Watermelon’s affinity with the green approach to fashion?
It’s about offering attractive designs of high quality with more meaning behind the garments! The message behind my eco-designs is that fashion is not superficial, there is a deeper insight behind the designs of ICA Watermelon. It’s about doing something good for the world and contributing to humanity!
What are the musical influences behind ICA Watermelon?
It’s hard to pinpoint one musical influence behind ICA Watermelon but I would definitely say Scandinavian music and songs from Denmark & Norway fuel the creativity behind ICA Watermelon. This type of music is not very extroverted but very content!
What can we expect to see in the "Soft Bonds" collection at |FAT| Toronto?
The dynamics of this collection will be very different from my past work! I will be exploring the contrast between themes such as independence, connectivity, freedom, friendship and love. Get prepared to see floating fabrics intertwined with heavy wool pieces!
