HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE
A collection based on the Studio Ghibli movie Howl's Moving Castle and the designer Martin Margiela. Howl's Moving Castle is an animated fantasy movie about two characters, a wizard (Howl) and a young woman (Sophie) who turned old, and their journey together. Howl travels with his moving castle, a moving vehicle made of different building structures.
The movie combines futuristic technology reminiscent of steampunk fashion. Martin Margiela utilizes an intense use of structural design, a deconstructive method, and a mix and match of materials.
In my collection, I designed each look of a character in the movie:
Madame Sulliman: The queen of the realm. She is regal and cunning.
Sophie: She is a sweet, shy character that learns to grow into herself and take control.
Howl: A wizard that has the ability to change into a bird creature.
The Castle: A big round structure utilized as a vehicle of transportation.
The Witch: She is sly with an innocent motive.
