Igor Dieryck Questions the Meaning of Power in ‘Duty Calls’ Collection

Designers often take inspiration from the past or their heritage but a growing amount of creatives uses political motives as a starting point. For his new collection, Belgian designer and fashion student at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Igor Dieryck based himself on the question: “Does this garment give me power? And if so, how?” and investigated his interest in the contemporary world by researching different people in positions of power through the 20th century.

Analyzing his own collection, Dieryck states: “This collection is terribly political in the sense that it relates the different political games that constitute the life of our nations. However, it was important to me that it would not be political in the sense of ideas.” That introspective translates in his choice of silhouette: an imperial silhouette.


The 21-year-old creative sees his seven-piece-counting collection rather as an analysis of the political game than criticism. While Igor Dieryck likes to create businessmen designs, he still tries to incorporate his signature street style aesthetics in his looks. DUTY CALLS is a mixture of his admiration for people who put their personal interests aside and eventually a sharp criticism of these political games to keep this power.
