Emilia Tikka is a Finnish designer based in Berlin. After being signaled by Vogue Talents, she presented her collection External Body during the last Berlin Fashion Week in a beautiful ex-industrial studio, with the collaboration of iHeartBerlin blog.
The External Body collection is inspired by the texts of french philosopher Jacques Derrida. The main idea of the collection is the fading of borders between the organic body and its dress. In the past, our choice of dress was a way to express individuality. Now the body in itself has become a form of expression: a text that can be re-written and re-shaped by technologies and performance. In the 90′s the technological cyborg body of machines and computers inspired fashion. Twenty years later, the cyborg has changed into a biotechnological complex, where technologies appear organic and natural.
