Samsung’s Galaxy S7 Edge Inspires MODA Young Designers
The release of the Samsung S7 Edge is lauded by many as the turning point in the design language and style of Samsung’s flagships. The S7 Edge brought an edgy, sophisticated style which married both design, functionality and utility into a single, distinctive, signature style for Samsung. It through this revolutionary design that the South Korean manufacturer managed to steal many people’s hearts.
While the design of the S7 Edge, brought a sense of refinement, the technology within proved that style can come with substance. The top of the line processor paired with an amazing graphics engine and the crisp Super AMOLED display not only enhanced the functionality of the device but brought vibrancy and colour to the already stunning design. In addition, the Galaxy S7 edge piqued the curiosity of many with its catch phrase, “Rethink What A Phone Can Do”.
With such design prowess under their belt, it comes as no surprise that Samsung chose to collaborate with the Malaysian Official Designers Association (MODA) to help nurture the younger generation of designers. This year’s MODA Samsung Innovation Awards saw young designers rise to the challenge of designing garments inspired by the device’s titular catch phrase.
It comes as no surprise that the garments saw designers look to the future with edgy, futuristic designs not only inspired by the catch phrase but also the design language of Samsung’s signature device. Designers not only showed off their prowess in designing an array of the most beautiful and eye catching garments but also their creativity in incorporating the device in their runway. Models paraded their outfits complemented with creatively designed clutches, bags among other enclosures carrying an S7 edge immersed in water. Three designers were awarded the coveted MODA Samsung Innovation Award.
