Unlike other Antwerpen Royal Academy‘s student collections, which are usually very creative but a bit over-designed, Mariel Manuel’s collection ‘ What happens in the grotto, stays in the grotto…’ inspired by uzbekistanian men’s clothes while demonstrating the same eclectic style with lots of intricate details, prints, furs, accessoires and patterns at the same time is very well thought out collection, consists of very sophisticated but well balanced looks.
