How did you first get into designing clothing?

I learned to knit when I was very young but I think my mom making all of my Halloween costumes growing up was a huge inspiration.  I had a little fashion show in high school and continued making some clothing pieces during college.  I didn't really make wearable garments until 2008 when I made some finale pieces for the VPL show.

Where do you get your inspiration from?  

I'm inspired by my friends and their work.  We are all making different things in a lot of different mediums.  We all influence each other.

"I have always been an advocate for being comfortable with your own body."

Does the knit aspect tend to inform the rest of the collection or vice versa? 

Up until this coming ss15 season I'd say my collection was 90% knitted.  The other aspects of the collection were added afterwards to help add balance to the work.  I really only think about the knitting when I first begin a season, then I add those other printed elements.

Your collection is very playful, what helps you keep this playfulness?

I think making everything myself is the key to keeping the fun within the collection.  Because I have to make everything I want the making to be fun.  That means working with a lot of colors and textures to keep myself excited.  I think you can see the fun I have making the work in the final product.

We loved the boobless rainbow top, is this an embrace of sexuality in the #freethenipple way? 

I have always been an advocate for being comfortable with your own body.  I think the #freetheKNITple movement comes from a similar place although I would say that both women AND men should be more comfortable.  So I guess its less of a feminist statement and more of a universal sexuality statement.

Where do you want the brand to go? 

I would like to be able to continue making art while also expanding the wearable section of the brand.  I want to see DEGEN in more upper tier stores.

Timeless Fashion by Haya Maraka

Haya Maraka

THE UNLIMITED asked writer, muse and fashion icon Haya Maraka to share her toughts about what is timeless fashion in the fast fashion world.

Yes, you have heard that term constantly and in an industry that is truly based on change with no time at all to even wear all the clothes between pre fall and cruise. What really is timeless fashion? Is it a term that is loosely used, and a tad bit cliché, without us really knowing what timeless fashion is? Also is anybody really designing timeless fashion anymore or are people more focused on fast fashion. Or will the fashion being created now only become timeless 20 years from now. Who are we to judge, in an industry that is so controlled by time, do we ever stop to remember the time less pieces and fashion? 

Jacqueline Kennedy’s pink Chanel Suit

Jacqueline Kennedy’s pink Chanel Suit

When I think of timeless fashion, the first few names and images that pop in my mind, are YVES SAINT LAURENT’s Le Smoking tuxedo, or the Valentino Red Era. To me timeless fashion is something that made an impact on the world and something that can be passed on and worn again and again. Timeless fashion doesn’t just have to be portrayed through a designer, but also can be an image or a woman. Strong images that have made an outfit timeless, like Jacqueline Kennedy’s pink Chanel Suit she wore the tragic day JFK was shot, or the flannel shirt that became Kurt Cobain’s staple piece can also be an example of timeless fashion. 

 

Essentially the answer is in your hands and you are the one who decides what timeless fashion should be. Whatever it is that you have had in your closet the longest that can still be worn today is considered timeless. In an industry that is consumed by hierarchy at the end it really is you the consumer that is the main dictator.
