The theme for Runway 10 is Remember Imagine, which encourages everyone to look at the past and remember where we started, so we are able to look towards the future and what we can achieve. Leading up to the show, we will be focusing in on each of our senior designers and learning about the road that lead them to where they are now. The next senior designer we will be spotlighting is Jill Cirrincione.
Jill has always had a love of art and making things. About nine years ago, she realized that fashion was a practical application of art, so she decided to purse a degree in fashion design, and has been working on it ever since.
For Runway 10, Jill’s collection is called Common Era. It was inspired by old movies that depicted what the future would be like. Every generation predicted that there would be humanoid robots to assist with mundane, everyday tasks to make more time for leisure activities. Today we are living this imagined future, with many automated machines, however, unlike the movies predicted, humans are the real robots. Jill’s collection represents breaking out of the robotic rat race that humans have become part of.
