About Me

Hello there, I'm Graziella a graduate from Istituto Marangoni Milano

I've been expressing myself through fashion since I can remember. I've experimented with all kinds of art forms like painting, collaging, dancing, acting but fashion has been the only constant in all these years. I find it very interesting how fashion and society mirror each other and I can see it as a constant idea generator.

I'm very much passionate about the human internal universe: the psychic, the emotional and the spiritual and how all of these manifest in such different ways in specific cultures or times.

INSPIRATION

The collection has the focus on psychoanalysis and it unfolds in surreal details

What colour are thoughts? Do they have texture? A specific shape or form? The psychic universe, a big part of the manifestation of our existence, is abstract to our material perception. Can you translate a thought into something physical? It seems like the answers are veiled in mystery. A method used for gaining access to unconscious processes is free association ( freie einfälle ) developed by Freud which might give us some clues at least

Looks range from the dramatic to the historical. A parallel is constructed between the 30’s and our present days. Those historical years, placed between two world wars, speak of a tremendous trauma and a premonition of a new tragedy. Such angst, constraints and terror people were feeling back then are actually recurring feelings and ideas of present society. The COVID pandemic made us feel anxious, separated, helpless and chaotic. Disquieting designs offer some escapism and light in these dark times

MY WORK

PORTFOLIOS

DETAIL

3D Rendering of one of the outfits

I've found 3D renderings to be a good communication tool as you can play with forms and shifting them into surreal visuals. The avatar and the outfit were developed in CLO3D and then imported in Blender for the construction of the environment.
