Diplomstudentene arbeider store deler av sitt siste år med sin egen kolleksjon. Her velger de selv tema og målgruppe. Kolleksjonene presenteres for en jury fra bransjen samt en representant fra ESMOD Paris. Kommer man seg gejnnom nåløyet, mottar man, i tillegg til vitnemålet, det prestisjetunge ESMOD Diplomet. Juryen deler også ut priser for de beste arbeidene.
Vi gratulerer alle våre 14 avgangsstudenter med vel gjennomført eksamen og jury, og er stolte over å kunne sende alle 14 ut i motebransjen med ESMOD Diplomet i hånden!
"What does sound look like? Even if you can’t hear it, you feel it vibrate through your body, on your skin and underneath your fingertips. Your blood pulsates with the vibrations of the base. It can be abstract and physical, put in to scales and systems, made into art, and used as therapy or torture."

"My concept is based upon the theories of Freud, about conscious/unconscious mind levels and how our brain works. I have challenged this theory and accepted another mind level; the subconscious. This is where our brain shuts down and pushes the reality away from our focal awareness.
Closing off, encapsulating and pushing away difficulties. Being naiv and pretending not to see."
Marianne Moen Vembre
The starting point for my collection was John Carpenters horror classic “They Live” (1988)
When the main character finds some truth revealing sunglasses,
he exposes an alien ruling class controlling the “sleeping” human race.
The social commentary in the movie massively illustrates issues with the conformed society.
Things are not what they seem. The truth can reveal itself thought your own awareness.
I have used this as a concept for creating my collection."
"What defines our perception of beauty? The golden ratio, the pattern of growth, phi. Mathematical forms is found everywhere. The shape of our galaxy, nature, the spiral of our own DNA. It defines us and subconsciously attracts our brain the most.
Be aware, are we all a product of a human software? Your perception may be distorted by socially constructed ideas of beauty.
"My theme was born out of the disputes between Russia and Ukraine. I come from the former Soviet Union, and there was a time when there was peace between the people and friendship after the war. During the war, people were fighting for life and liberty. And what happened to the people now? My friends became enemies, they stopped talking because of the fact that the politicians can not accept a peace agreement. As a result I have worked with merging uniforms with poetic fluid shapes. Thru coarse stitches, damaged materials and asymmetry I want to show the pain, and injuries that people have experienced. I chose white
because by using this color I want to show the freedom and purity of human relations. "
“My Little Neighborhood”, a collection for girls in the age 2 - 7 years.
The collection is inspired by old houses, buildings,
architecture and doll houses.
You will find clothing for every occasion, from casual
to birthday and party dresses.
The collection is colorful and playful, with a touch of glam and gold!

"I have a women collection inspired by gentrification.
Gentrification is a trend in urban neighborhoods, which results in increased property values and the displacing of lower-income families and small businesses. This is a common and controversial topic in urban planning. It refers to shifts in an urban community lifestyle and an increasing share of wealthier residents and/or businesses and increasing property values.
"I am presenting a ready-to-wear collection for women. The inspiration behind the collection was gathered through research on autoimmune diseases, and how lives are led whilst battling an apparently illusive illness which cannot be seen by those around you. I wanted to make the invisible visible, and have focused on the contrasts between
minimalistic and asymmetrical expressions through a variety of fabrics such as soft wool and fluid silk, decorated with hand embroideries and original prints."

"My collection has been inspired by the Asian nature, where the men’s collection has been given a special feminine touch. My main focus has been on dying fabrics, using
different techniques for this. This area of focus has
contributed to making my collection unique."

"We can only tell about past and present but future is like a blurred image. How can we explain future? Maybe by technology.Technology is the key to understanding future which leads me to trying new techniques and forms. I have focused on the brain of technology which is motherboard and collection is an interaction between human mind and computer mind."
