ST. PAUL, Minn.--3M, the global innovation company recognized for diversified technology and applying creativity and ingenuity to improve people’s lives, announces a partnership with London-based fashion label Fyodor Golan at London Fashion Week 2017. As designers, industry leaders and fashion enthusiasts gathered from across the globe for the annual event, Fyodor Golan unveiled their unprecedented vibrant collection. 3M Design and Post-it Brand from 3M teamed up with Fyodor Golan for the Autumn/Winter 2017 collection with the theme of “Never Just A Little.” Part of this collection is inspired by the colors and shapes of world-famous Post-it Products. Known for creatively manipulating materials through ground-breaking technology, Fyodor Golan’s collaboration with 3M brings to life the unified mission to apply design and creativity in dynamic ways to empower the freedom of self-expression.
“At 3M we are committed to elevating design and collaborative creativity, and we are proud to partner with Fyodor Golan on this fashion collection,” said Eric Quint, chief design officer at 3M. “We believe in the power of creative ideation and translating concepts in imaginative new ways and are excited to bring the Post-it Note, a mainstay in homes and offices around the world, to life on the runway.”
For the cutting-edge Fyodor Golan collection, the label derives inspiration from the look and design of Post-it Notes throughout the garments. The designers’ drive and expressive approach established recognizable brand image. Playful undertones with experimental cuts focused on bold colors and digital-like textures. While the collections vary in style, the signature remains distinct and evokes the artful conception of iconic Post-it Products. Following the London Fashion Show, the garments are traveling to Paris for display in showrooms for buyers.
“Post-it Products have come to express an everyday art form and an element of universal self-expression. The iconic colors and design purity of the Post-it Note have been essential to our collections over the last 5 years. Moveable printed and embossed leather Post-it Note shapes bring that freedom of expression to the garments through simple messages and reminders,” said Golan Frydman, co-founder of Fyodor Golan. “We wanted to create interchangeable, individual uniform-like quality to each piece. Designing limited edition FG Post-it Notes, printed 360 degrees at a prefect cube, connected the two worlds.”
London Fashion Week 2017 ran from February 17 – February 21, 2017, welcoming more than 5,000 guests from over 49 countries to its new home at The Store Studios.
