Katharina Perkhofer

The Perversions of Truth’ marks the title and spirit of the emerging Austrian born and London based designer Katharina Perkhofer’s final MA collection at LCF in London. Her collection focuses on subtle prints, clean-cut lines and unusual textual and visual details. Experimenting with concepts of visibility and invisibility, the designer examines the boundary between the private and public, forcing us to readjust and renew our common conceptions of modern social reality. Digital prints, which carefully uncover inner and outer body parts in random dots, simulate real textured fabrics and are translated into delicate patterns. The refined shapes and monochrome colour palette show an original approach to creative variety and Perkhofer’s sophisticated sensibility toward the impact of minute details. ‘The Perversions of Truth’ is a beautiful visual rendition of the modern man – daring, aware and elusive. Since completing her MA studies in Fashion Design Technology Menswear at London College of Fashion, University of the Arts London, Perkhofer has worked as Menswear Casualwear Design Assistant at the renowned British luxury fashion brand Jaeger. Her educational and professional background includes a BA in Fashion Design at the University of Arts and Industrial Design Linz, Vienna, in Austria, as well as, most recently, work experiences at Vivienne Westwood and Peter Pilotto in London. In 2012, Perkhofer was awarded the LCF Artscom Scholarship, and in 2011 she was invited to showcase her BA collection at Bunka College, Fashion Week in Tokyo, Japan.
