Casper Werner

Born in Antwerp, Belgium, 1991

Graduated in 2015

Casper Werner recently graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts. Lady Gaga and Rita Ora have already been spotted in his creations. As a result, he received a lot of international media attention in a very short time. His Sixties-style creations are part of his graduation collection, “The girl on a motorcycle”, which was inspired by “La Motocyclette”, a film from 1968.

Werner wanted to obtain a contrast between two different aspects which the film focused on, i.e. the conservative and the more erotic. For the first part of his collection he used a mix of seductively tight leather items, combined with more conservative details in silk and wool. There is also a transition in the colours from pastels to darker colours like  purple and red. The second part of his collection is all about open, leather jumpsuits, which refer to the film’s climax, in combination with zippers and buttons which have been finished with decorative diamonds. Currently Werner is employed by the prestigious New York fashion brand, Oscar de la Renta.
