Simple by nature, my style is epurated but always with a "WOW" effect. My garments are modern, impressive while being wearable.
Revolutionary girl, all my collections are committed to a cause, defending or denouncing a mistreatment. In this collection, I would like to show that we are all equal, regardless of our pigmentation, so this is ALL ABOUT SKIN. This collection claims to be comfortable like sportswear, while being chic and trendy.
By a Saturday morning, watching several shows during the fashion week, I noticed that there were not enough models representing the variety of this world. Then a few days later, I found this video of Naomi Campbell on Channel 4 News, talking about her fights and specially about racism in fashion. I immediately identify myself in what she said and it encourage me to join this cause.
Why is there always the same people who is highlighted ? The skin is more that a simple envelope, it is a real organ which protect us from the external world. But instead of that, we use the skin to differentiate each other. We should not focus on the visible skin color, but going deeper into it and see that we are all made the same way: cells. Therefore, by this collection, I want to allow balance diversity.
To illustrate it, I made it with unconventional colors, which are actually the real tones of the skin layers. I played a lot with patterns to represent the physical structure of it, at cells level. Finally, I used different fabrics such as silk, latex and printed recycled polyester to show the skin's aspect. I made the latex myself in order to give it shapes and texture I wanted. The Latex allowed me to reproduce the skin touch with its imperfections, as spots, scars or freckles by using several materials like beads, sand or paint. As skin regenerates itself, I wanted to make garments which are sustainable too.
