Avatar, the haute couture collection Fall/Winter 2018-19 by Azulant Akora, is inspired by millennials and made by millennials. According to Vogue UK, millennials have become couture’s biggest clients, even though today the number of haute couture clients in the world is limited to 4,000.
Avatar is inspired by the epic science fiction film by James Cameron (2008). “All energy is only borrowed, and one day you have to give it back,” is the main message of the new collection. “In life, everything is about balance; giving back as much as we take and respecting the Earth,” says Azulant Akora. “Drawing on its message of respecting our natural resources and connecting with the Earth. Science is unable to keep up with our industrial society. We are destroying species faster than we can classify them.”
African Australian designer Azulant Akora embraces unconventional angles and unexpected forms, bold colours and regal silhouettes. She emerged onto the Australian fashion scene in 2013, when she was awarded the Australian Wool Fashion Award.
Her couture collection features the vibrancy of royal blue, royal purple, royal green with hints of metallic silver and gold.
