From the sublime to the ridiculous - Femke Agema

Published by

Nothing hits the headlines of the fashion rumour mill like a completely impractical, no-one-is-ever-going-to-wear-that-down-to-Tesco-apart-from-Lady-Gaga type creation from the most haywired of designers brains.

This collection is based on our emotional response to Spring which according to Agema captures “the simple joy we feel in being let loose into the wild to play in an environment overflowing with possibilities.”

'Elders' follows on from Agema's last collection for Autumn/Winter 2012 entitled 'Nigliktok' after the inuit word for 'cold' created for what Femke describes as "the inevitable snowpocalypse" for which she invented her now infamous Snow Suit.
