It is often said that nothing is new, everything is recycled. That fashion ebbs and flows in trends and styles that are often repeated. Those that believe this care little, then, for the Avant-Garde; the band of designers, representing all corners of the globe, that dare to be different, push boundaries and challenge the status quo. Who design from the richness of their own imagination and are influenced by nature and the curiosities of the world, and for whom industry convention holds little significance.

Revolutionary in their approach, these progressive designers take shapes and give them new meaning, create lines where there usually are none, and mix fabrics in unexpected ways. Experimentation is the mechanism in which garments are developed and created for those that want to express, not conform.

Those designers, which we believe have the qualities of les avant-gardists that we are proud to host this year at Tranoï Preview Fall/Winter 2015-2016 are (from top to bottom, left to right): Anett Roestel, Avant Toi, Umit Unal, Lunettes Kollektion, Ines & Marechal, Oops, Leather Crown, Rundholz, Dzmitry Samal, Coralie Amsellem, Sprung Freres Collection, Brockenbow.
