Tell us more about your collection!

One of my first inspirations was a post-apocalyptic world, like in the movie “Mad Max: Fury Road”. I thought about a woman surviving a big disaster and living in this kind of environment, like Imperator Furiosa, the Mad Max protagonist. I made these collages about the environment and all of the ideas that come from environmental scientists thinking about how to save earth, but the truth is that earth doesn’t need humans to save it. All we can save is ourselves, because earth will always be here. I wanted to look at that in a positive way, creating a narrative that starts after the apocalypse, when it’s about embracing a new way of life. I always like incorporating tricks into my designs so you can flip them into a whole different silhouette. I want to create garments that are changeable and reversible. The woman I have in mind for this collection is a spy during a war so she has to be able to change her look in seconds to adapt to different situations.
