An overwhelming desire for creative self-expression defines this playful and empowering direction. Verve champions diversity and underrepresented voices and celebrates new hybrid fusions and juxtapositions. Extravagant crafts and decorative aesthetics are used to counteract normcore and homogeneity.
Emerging subcultures are reflected in modern mash-ups of sporty meets sci-fi, and girlishness meets punk. Ultra-feminine details like bows and frills are offset by grungy industrial metals, while the blending of outlandish colour and kitsch pastels illustrates the merging of an ambiguous future with a nostalgic past.
