Wild Thing—The Swiss Fashion Scene

A highly attractive survey of Switzerland’s vibrant and innovative fashion scene.

What kind of fashion exists without mass production, Hollywood, and international fashion weeks? In Switzerland, far from the dictates of the major fashion hubs, small labels, collectives, and young graduates, as well as established brands, test their potential for greatness. Creative designers take initiative and position themselves in Berlin, join the fashion circus in Paris, or establish clever business models.

Wild Thing—The Swiss Fashion Scene, published in conjunction with an exhibition at Museum für Gestaltung Zürich, puts a spotlight on this development and the products resulting from it. The book picks up on current topics—such as minimalism and the questioning of assigned gender identities—that shape designs, design concepts, and processes. Lavishly illustrated, it features looks and creations, selected outfits, textile inventions, and collection presentations by important labels. In addition, the book contains links to short print-in-motion videos, which can be watched by pointing a smartphone camera at the corresponding image. The videos offer interviews with fashion experts and contributions from fashion schools. Together with brief text interviews, portraits of individual designers, and other contributions, Wild Thing—The Swiss Fashion Scene is a highly attractive snapshot of Switzerland’s creative and vibrant fashion scene.
