We have been so lucky to get a slot at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin

January 17th 2014 17.00H in the tent a the smalle part called Stage

This is great, and we are overly excited, but we need some help with the funding! We would love to do our own kind of show, within the frames of the Fashion Week tent! We would be so gratefull if you would help making this an reality, and to tell a story through a show that adresses political and social issues of the world we live in!


The MADS DINESEN fashion label showcases the creative exploits of its Danish-born designer and operates from Berlin, Germany. In 2010, Mads Dinesen graduated from the UdK University of the arts in Berlin with the menswear collection "Pain is felt by all...". For this collection, he was nominated several times in international competitions, among which the 2011 Hyères 26th International Fashion and Photography Festival (Jury: Raf Simons, Christopher Kane, Prouenza Schouler, Tim Blanks, etc.) and the Mango Fashion Awards 4th Edition 2012 (Jury: Carolina Herrera, Kate Moss, Derek Blasberg, etc.).

After two striking collection presentations/installations in gallery spaces, a show at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week would signify another leap forward for the label MADS DINESEN, and it would allow for the designer to expand upon his previous successes in delivering a unique show experience. 

Danish-born Berliner Mads Dinesen is one of the most striking fashion talents in town, all the while being one of the most idiosyncratic.

Nina Trippel, Cee Cee 01/2013

The fashion house of Dinesen combines an in-depth working knowledge of impeccable tailoring and a passionate approach to fine craftsmanship. The street models he carefully selects evoke the fabric of the contemporary human condition and their physical presence permeates through the layers of each costume to reveal its essential materiality. In so doing, the spectacular presentations of his collections evoke a raw and primal energy, though the experience remains determinedly brutal and contemporary in relation to the environmental and social-political nature of the world around us. His consistent interest in spirituality and his intensive research into tribal and nomadic culture impacts the physical world we inhabit when wearing a Dinesen piece. His work is haunting and beautiful, grotesque yet bold, and it is as compelling as it is taboo. He seeks to dismantle our preconceived notions about sexuality and physical beauty. Through his imagery, we gain a greater understanding about human difference and tolerance.



MADS DINESEN

Smoke-clad Warrior

AW 2014

Mixed Collection

Throughout the history of humanity and everywhere on earth, individuals, movements, and groups of people have expressed their ideals and principles by means of protests, marches and demonstrations. Recently, we have witnessed the Arab Spring and the resistance against the oppression of LGBT individuals and organizations in Russia.

Clashes occur between governments and people, between different interest groups, or between an individual and a society. The energy that is released in clashes like these serves as the main inspiration for the

AW2014 collection "Smoke-Clad Warrior" by MADS DINESEN.

How are protest, resistance and ideals expressed through clothing, not only from the point of view of the individual, but also from a societal and cultural point of view? Do we conform our style based on a certain way of living or on a sense of idealism? Or do we express ourselves through slogans on T-shirts and badges?

The collection is a tribute to all historical and contemporary pioneers who are risking their honour, freedom and occasionally also their life in order to change the world for the better.

Changes, that we as a society now may perceive as being natural or normal, often only occurred after long and heroic fights.

Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, the Dalai Lama, Shirin Ebadi, Harvey Milk, Susan B. Anthony, Ai Weiwei, Anthony Hegarty, Desmond Tutu, Aung San Suu Kyi, ... The list of people who have fought bravely, and are fighting bravely, is endless. The courage and integrity that binds them, is both impressive and inspiring.

To fight for political and societal change, we must go on an introspective journey to be convinced of the idealistic fight ahead. Only by accurately determining our own beliefs, it becomes possible to conquer any injustices we face. But where does an individual encounter his own limits?

This emotional, almost spiritual, way to construct a worldview is comparable to an inner journey where each and every one of us becomes our own spiritual leader. We transform into shamans, priests, or holy men, who through knowledge and experience attempt to shape the world to our personal ideals; that is the main theme of this ethnically mystical, yet youthfully provocative collection.

The collection is focussed on being a fusion of elements inspired by history, ethnic cultures, and youth culture.

The cuts and fabrics of this collection are an interplay between light and heavy, construction and draping, and of order and coincidence. The colour range is predominantly dark, though an occasional touch of colour does appear.

As in all MADS DINESEN collections, prints, fabric manipulation, and knitwear are the elementary particles of this collection.

In total, 15-20 outfits will be created, including 3-4 women's (or unisex) outfits.

Through the AW2014 collection “Smoke-Clad Warrior”, MADS DINESEN wants to challenge everyone: 

LOOK WITHIN! - CHOOSE YOUR BATTLES! – FIGHT THE FIGHT!


Show Concept

The ideal presentation of the show would be a classic runway show with strong personalities (i.e. street models), where the models would be entering the runway one by one.

An important element of MADS DINESEN's fashion is a theatrical and spiritual level, one that always fluctuates between approachability and performance. This balance is also expressed by using a mix of live music (song) and electronic soundscapes. Folkloric and tribal elements are combined with the classic "Western" fashion show choreography. The lighting is intended to be rather dark and mystical and as the show progresses, the transition from dark to light will be made. In line with the inspiration and the title of the collection, the use of smoke will be an integral part of the presentation.
