People often ask me why I like to write about fashion. One reason is that I get to meet fascinating and creative people like Naim Josefi, who have a vision all their own. Check out this runway show of his Melonia collection, where the models are all connected to one other.

The Melonia footwear, which Naim created in collaboration with Souzan Youssouf, is as original as the rest of the collection. Naim made “the first 3D-printed haute couture shoes in the world and comes from the concept of no waste.”
His idea is that you can go to a shop where your feet are scanned, and a shoe is “printed.” The image can than be used the next time you need a pair of shoes. Magazines and fashion blogs all over the world have reported about the unique, skeletal-like shoe.

In an earlier project, Naim, a final-year student at Beckmans College of Design who originally hails from Iran, created handbags and hats from second-hand bras. This is all part of his idea about sustainable fashion.

I ask Naim if he has any new projects on the drawing board: “I will have an exhibit at the next Stockholm Fashion Week (in February) at the NK department store. It is all about tailoring,” he explains.
If Naim lives up to his reputation, it will be like nothing we have ever seen before.
