COMPUTER WORLD: Thrive designer Cem Cako is determined to prove there is beauty in electronic hardware. On Friday night in Berlin, models wandered around a riverside club in short, verdant dresses, which on closer inspection were covered in graphic, circuit-board patterns. “We dismantled old DVD players and computers and took out the circuit boards, which are actually quite intricate and aesthetic,” explained Cako. Trained at the prestigious Flanders Fashion Institute, Cako, who also has an eponymous men’s wear label, works with a team to build conceptual, but wearable pieces on the computer theme – from graphic print dresses, to circuit-board necklaces and earrings made out of computer keys. The Berlin party was hosted by German beauty magazine TUSH and the theme of electronics extended to the entertainment as electro pop trio Chicks on Speed kept the crowd dancing late into the night.
