AVIAD ARIK HERMAN: THE MAN BEHIND ICONIC NATIONAL COSTUMES

Postby iamchelsea » Thu Jan 19, 2017 9:11 pm

    

Whenever I see or hear this name, the first word that comes to my mind is "iconic". And it's none other than,

AVIAD ARIK HERMAN

This talented Israeli designer has been tapped by some national directors to create the national costume for their respective countries, notably Sweden who had worn the creations of Aviad in the recent years.

Everytime he creates a national costume, you will never see a plain, traditional costume but instead you'll see an "out of the box" master piece. His designs were always inspired by the culture and history of the country his design will represent and based on his creations, he is dedicating his effort each piece of it.


Can we just give appreciation for this man? Let's have a look on his national costume design for the past Miss Universe Editions.

2011

Sweden often (if not always) wear their traditional dress as their National Costumes. But not in 2011, when Sweden decided to go for a change and behind this change was Aviad's design. It was his first ever national costume creation to be worn and shown in Miss Universe.

2013

MODER SVEA

Once again, in 2013, Aviad was tapped to create Alexandra Friberg's costume. This year he decided to take inspiration for the Swedish version of "Lady Liberty', "Moder Svea". Moder Svea is the female personification of Sweden. The result? Astounding!

2014

SAINT LUCIA

Aviad has been creating Swedish National Costumes twice already and in 2014, his third will be showcased in Miami with Camilla Hanson. This year he took inspiration from a very popular swedish tradition, Saint Lucy's Day. It is a celebration of the feast of Saint Lucia. In Sweden it is a candle lit procession and a ceremony where in little girls will dress up as St. Lucia and one will be elected to portray St. Lucia and will be participating in the candle lit procession where they sing about Lucia. The elected Lucies, will also serve as ambassadors and the often go to houses, and around town and participate in various activities.

The celebration is the holiday of the lights held during the winter season of Sweden. According to Aviad, it also symbolizes hope and light in the growing violence in this world.

GERMANY

FALL OF THE BERLIN WALL AND REUNIFICATION OF GERMANY

Who wouldn't forget this amazing national costume of Miss Germany, Josefine Donat? And yes,it is another creation of Aviad Arik Herman. For the first time two of his creations will be featured in Miss Universe with one being among the Top 5 Best in National Costumes! This is probably among the most beautiful national costumes ever created. Why? Because it's so meaningful and filled with symbolism. Aviad took inspiration from the 25th Anniversary of Fall of the Berlin Wall and the Reunification of Germany as one country and interpreted it into a fashion masterpiece. The coat symbolizes the Old Germany, torn apart divided by the wall, while the dress symbolized the New United Germany filled with hope and optimism for a greater future.

TRADITION AND MONARCHY

In 2015, Aviad created another masterpiece to be worn by Paulina Brodd in Miss Universe stage. The costume was a tribute to the Swedish monarchy, as well as Sweden's traditional folk people, seen in the combination of a 18th century royal gown colored in traditional swedish colors. A 30 meter long cape was also created with the support of fashion design students, depicting the city icons of Gothenburg.

AUSTRIA

CONCHITA WURST

Unusual perhaps? But it's an Aviad thing. This unique Austrian costume is a tribute to Conchita Wurst, also called "bearded lady" who won the Eurovision Singing Contest in 2014. Conchita Wurst is a drag character of Tom Neuwirth and after Conchita's win, the bearded lady instantly became a popular European LGBT icon.

PIPPI LONGSTOCKING

Aviad created another masterpiece for Ida to wear on the National Costume competition, entitled, Dress of Dreams. The costume was inspired by the strongest girl in the world, Pippi Longstocking who happens to be on its 70th Anniversary. Like Pippi, the dress symbolizes children empowerment in order for the children to successfully fulfill their dreams.


AUSTRIA

SOUND OF MUSIC

For Austria, Aviad gave honor to the 50th Anniversary of The Sound of Music, a movie which follows the story of the Austrian "Von Trapp Family" and Maria. Although, the film was a Hollywood Film, the real life Von Trapps and Maria are Austrians who became musicians in the 1940s after escaping Nazi occupied Austria.

ISRAEL

INSPIRED BY:
Image
EVE

In Israel, Aviad designed a simple yet historical dress. It was inspired by the very first woman of the world", Eve! And we all know that the bible originated in Israel. Probably this is the first time they used a character in the bible for inspiration.

I think Israel's costume is a genius idea and my bet is that it will win the NC competition this year. A nice break away from feathers, big puffy dresses or huge contraptions that the girls carry around.
