FILIPPA AGATON


I prefer to work with minimalistic design because I believe it accentuates the details; such as cuts and material, and communicate the design. I often consider clean, straight lines and sculptural shapes to be more striking than something that aims to be extravagant. I thrive to find balance and interface between silhouette, detail, and texture, and I believe that the greatest achievement within design is when it lasts for generations.

My name is Filippa Agaton, I'm 23 years old and just graduated from the BA programme in Fashion Design at Beckmans College of Design. I was born and raised in Stockholm but studied design in Copenhagen before starting the BA program at Beckmans.  






FILIPPA AGATON SS22 COLLECTION
Hommage to ambivalence

My impression is that designers are expected to niche their aesthetic expressions and be consistent in this, something I have long struggled with. But during my graduation project I realized that my various styles have, rather, become an asset.

Personally, I have long felt that I shift between two contrasting expressions. On one hand I want to create fashion that radiates elegance and femininity, but on the other hand I also want to create fashion that is oversized and sporty. I have frequently tried to choose one of these styles but just as many times I have changed my mind and this indecision has long been a insecurity in how I see myself as a designer.

But while preparing to work on my graduation collection it dawned on me that I have in fact always alternated between just these types of aesthetics, already as a child I would dress myself exclusively as a princess for a period or would keep to only wearing riding clothes or my big brother’s oversized sports clothes.

This made me realize how contradictory it is to limit one's creative process and, for this reason, in my graduation collection I have chosen to work with both expressions. And I have come to see my indecision as a great asset instead of regarding it as a weakness. This collection is a tribute to the division in me and all the influences that created it.
