From experimental pattern studies to glamorous seamless couture
On 20 June 2012, around 200 fashion pieces by students of the fashion school 'Modeschule Wien' in Hetzendorf in Vienna were presented at the 'Show 2012'; from experimental pattern studies realized as sculpture dresses over ready-to-wear like short trousers and elegant tops (photos below) to glamorous couture such as the one which was worn by musician Teresa Rotschopf from the band Bunny Lake.

The Modeschule Wien students' motto 'Together' of this year's show stands for fashion as manifestation of diversity, partnership and tolerance. The fashion show was directed by Creative Consulter Christopher Just who incorporated the current political and social movements of our society into the presentation. By following consequently the idea of a participative society where members determine individually their lifestyle, the students collaborated closely together on the conception of the show.
