DEMOBAZA Redefines Fashion with The Rebel Collection

by Emily Hirst

Here at Darling Magazine we always have our eyes peeled for dynamic brands that make the fashion scene all the more rebellious and mind-bending - and one brand that embodies this is Bulgarian fashion brand DEMOBAZA.

If you’re looking to embrace the unconventional, DEMOBAZA’S launch of their newest Spring Summer 2024 collection, The Rebel Collection, at Los Angeles Fashion Week (LAFW) is something you cannot miss.

Made in 2007 by Demo and Tono, the pair combined Bulgarian post-socialist spirit and “futuristic dreams” to generate a truly non-conformist brand. 

Now, the concept fashion brand’s Spring Summer collection is inspired by the essence of nature, with a care-free approach, with womens and menswear garments representing humanity and the wild - whilst reflecting the raw and primal energy of nature.

Spotlighting unconventional garments with deconstructed silhouettes that are reminiscent of survivalist gear, their fresh collection includes a colour palette of earth hues and an avant-garde aesthetic. Yeah, it’s a vibe.

The unquestionably distinctive high-end casual couture brand personifies futurism whilst incorporating raw elements and forward-thinking dimension.

DEMOBAZA states that they progress “transformation, awareness and awakening,” through their idiosyncratic visual communication, yet still has a deep connection to nature, the universe and inner balance.

The Rebel Collection also blended motifs of the sky and ground whilst referencing immersive aspects of nature. To truly reflect this they used fabrics like organically dyed denim, soft cotton, linen knitwear, delicate knits, and jersey garments.

DEMOBAZA’s vibration encapsulates multi-function, whilst dissecting the entanglement of natural and high-tech energies. Transition, enlightenment and evolution manifested into a re-thought fusion of dystopia and the living world.

Merging vest with belts, dubbing their rompers as a “reframe” and seamlessly making blankets a soon-to-be sought after accessory, the brand explains that their creativity is a natural progression “to a new vibration through galactic transition, enlightenment of the soul and awakening of the consciousness.”

Fashion For a Cause: Brands That Stand with Palestine and the history of fashion as a form of Activism

by Oana-Maria Moldovan For over two months, there has been an ongoing genocide war in Gaza. To simplify a long and horrific issue, the situation that started, on a larger scale, around one hundred years ago, and has only become amplified since October 7th 2023. Taking place around the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, and Israel–Lebanon border, the armed conflict is between Israel and Hamas-led Palestinian militant groups.  The problem is about “stolen” land. Said land is seen as an important holy part of both religions involved. But really, how holy can we consider a land to be, if people kill other people for it? It’s important to remember that this genocide is about three things: forced occupation, zionism, and religion. It’s also important to remember what ethnic erasure is. This terrible expresion, also known as cultural or ethnic assimilation, refers to the process by which the distinct cultural or ethnic identity of a particular group is gradually diminished or erased, often due to ext

Now What? The Aftermath of the 'Manic Pixie Dream Girl'

by Susan Moore Here is a bit about me: I am an open, excitable, creative AFAB who is also moderately attractive. I have a unique sense of personal style and a personality that on the surface can only be described as “bubbly” and “quirky”. For this reason, dating is a nightmare. To be sure, I do not have a hard time finding dates or potential suitors. The problems arise when said dates spend some time with me and decide that I am a rare specimen, and the connection they feel with me is “unlike anything they have felt before”. Then, things go one of two ways.  Either a) they decide I am too high maintenance and no longer palatable, or  b) they choose to never look further than the surface and are content to date the idea of me rather than the real me. There is something rather interesting, perhaps funny, about my situation. It is in no way unique. I have met so many people who constantly dealt with the same problem. Even funnier still, is the fact that there is a trope that simultaneousl
