Finalist of Alianz EGO 2021
Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Madrid
My references to build this collection are based on three personal bases of my design.
Firstly, color through light. Being passionate about cinema and the performing arts, I have always been impressed by the ability to create different and strong emotions through light and color. The hand-painted kerchiefs, inspired by those marvelous spaces of light created by the well-known artist James Turrell, are a reflection of this. They are created using a Zero Waste technique in which the kerchief can be worn alone, in a traditional manner, or be transformed into beautiful one-of-a-kind pieces by combining two or more together.
Secondly, the ability to construct and deconstruct after having analyzed the bases and traditional elements of a design, in order to create new pieces and evolve, is fundamental to me. Therefore, and encouraged by my passion for it, tailoring was a necessary element in my collection. I have deconstructed and played with the bases and elements of tradition to design a bold and different tailoring collection.
Finally, the personal experiences we have throughout life, and how they affect not only the way we are, but the way we express ourselves, are also very important to me, so, more than a simple collection of clothes parading on a catwalk, this is a collection with which I wanted to reflect my personality, character and identity.
