THE UNBORN – Atelier Chardon Savard - Marcomedia

Personal information :


I have always been appealed by fashion, as soon as I had the ability to voice out what I would wanted to wear I have been picking out my own garments. But only for the past three years I learned the ability to actually create garments. As I started to work as a stylist and creative director i got truly inspired by ‘small’ businesses and independent designers who visually showed the possibilities in the fashion design industry. Thereby I wanted to learn a new skill while as much as i love to collaborate, I have had experiences where in I felt like the vision did not reach it’s full capacity.

Therefore i had another drive to learn how to sew, to be able to not depend only on pulling garments based on a concept but to be able to envision more limitless by extending my own capacity. I am still learning but I have never been more challenged and want to peruse this.


Mode hat mich schon immer gereizt, und sobald ich sagen konnte, was ich anziehen wollte, habe ich mir meine eigenen Kleidungsstücke ausgesucht. Aber erst in den letzten drei Jahren habe ich die Fähigkeit erlernt, Kleidungsstücke zu entwerfen. Als ich anfing, als Stylistin und Kreativdirektorin zu arbeiten, wurde ich von „kleinen“ Unternehmen und unabhängigen Designern inspiriert, die die Möglichkeiten der Modedesignbranche visuell aufzeigten.

Dabei wollte ich eine neue Fertigkeit erlernen, und so sehr ich auch die Zusammenarbeit liebe, hatte ich doch das Gefühl, dass die Vision nicht ihre volle Kapazität erreichte. Deshalb hatte ich einen weiteren Drang, das Nähen zu lernen, um mich nicht nur darauf verlassen zu können, dass ich auf der Grundlage eines Konzepts Garemtn ziehe, sondern um durch die Erweiterung meiner eigenen Fähigkeiten grenzenlosere Visionen entwickeln zu können. Ich bin immer noch am Lernen, aber ich war noch nie so herausgefordert und möchte mich damit beschäftigen.


The unborn is highly inspired by the phenomenons of misbirth and stillborn. The feral forms that due internal and external construction could not life in our world. Often perceived as triggering and uncomfortable to watch, their forms are unique and rare. Therefore the aim is to beautify these elements of dismorphia and incompleteness to alter the perspective but in a abstract form, rather then being literal and confrontational. Misbirth speaks on its own, so my aim is to alter the reality into something conceptual.

Therefore this phenomenon is only being truly accepted within healthcare for about 50 years, while castration used to ‘prevent’ further birthing of the ‘misborn’.

The whole concept of birth is changing, especially socially. The interest of misbirth and stillbirth traces back to the beginning of men kind, however only now we truly have the medical tools to discover and diagnose the triggers and so the unborn trigger the research heavily. They influence the precision with observing the embryonic development and therefore the future. A future where in society might be completely equal. Where in we can have babies at any given time. Where in we alter their features and construct. Where in everyone holds power of their legacy.

The new Human
For the new world
Is the unborn

My aim is to return the power to the infant, the fragile, the ‘misborn‘ to beautify their forms and uniqueness. I am focussing therefore on draped and self made textiles to embrace the unique aspect and to give birth to something lifeless, something ‘unshaped‘.

Thereby their uniqueness and fragility is symbolized in the eventual color range which is blue and gray tones. To capture the essence of something decayed but unreal and slightly out of this world. They represent the future. Blue is the most uncommon color in nature and therefore it is very significant in the collection. It is also associated with isolation, depth and serenity. The materials chosen (except the print);are considered fragile materials, such as latex felt lace tulle and plastics, to embrace the fragility of the development of life, the embryo.
