Fashion designer Valeska Jasso Collado combined PVC, foam and fabric to create Memphis-influenced garments for her University of Westminster graduate collection. 

Valeska Jasso Collado chose an unusual combination of materials to create bold shapes reminiscent of furniture from the 1980s Milan-based design movement lead by designer Ettore Sottsass. Using sheets of foam as the base material, Jasso Collado stuck on layers of PVC in different colours.

Large sections of both PVC and fabric were folded, pleated and sliced to reveal the layers of colour. The resulting oversized garments create a range of geometric silhouettes. One top formed from a circular section of speckled material curved up to cover the lower half of the face, with holes for arms to slot through the front.
