Pia Walter – AWE
Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts & Design | Fashion/Body

Technologies and new inventions are increasingly incorporated into our everyday life. Despite all the benefits and improvements they offer, they also have an impact on our mental health: we are technologically more and more advanced, but on the inside we are still vulnerable human beings — and humans have always found protection and retreat in nature.

Pia Walter’s AWE fashion collection merges those opposing forces: our digital, technologically advanced lives on the one hand, and the benefits of experiencing awe in nature on the other. The collection brings together recycled camping equipment, army supplies, modern fabrics and materials and digital prints, expressing a strong belief in nature’s power to help us heal and stay close to reality.
