About Me

Marilyne is my name, SOFTHERA is who I am.

I am a student from LISAA Mode Paris and my collection is all about a projection into the future, and the search of our humanity which has been lost into a numerical world. I was inspired by the influence of technology on today’s society and by the evolution of our human condition through time.

Creating this collection, I thought about the future of fashion and a way to satisfy our needs in term of clothing while being respectful of our environment. Indeed, as my concept is to do reversible and transformable clothes, my goal is to propose a new way of wearing a garment but also to reduce fast fashion on the long run, by inciting people to buy less, as one garment is equal to two or three ones.

INSPIRATION

My first idea came from a reflexion on the relation between Humans and Technology.

Observing the functionment and the evolution of our contemporary society, I thought, in the first place, about what our world will be made of in the future : Will technology take over everything ? Inspired by the progress of technology and by the researches and development on the artificial intelligence, but also by the numerical in general, I imagined a futuristic silhouette : half human, half robot.

Secondly, as I always put the notion of duality into my projects, the one I wanted to explore here is the one between the natural and the artificial, and how to find our balance in a society where technology has such an important place. Through this project, I want to show the introspection of this cyberhuman, questionning herself about her feelings and her condition. Going through her mind, she is looking for her humanity which has been fading into an artificial environment, a virtual atmosphere.

THINKING ABOUT A DIFFERENT WAY OF WEARING A GARMENT

According to the sporty aspect of this collection, I wanted the accessories to be practical and in some ways, adapted to the mood of the person who wears them, as they can also be worn as a part of a garment, which leaves the hands free. Indeed, while creating my patterns, I thought about the construction and the shapes of my garments in order to make them transformable. I played with straps and pressure buttons, imagining in a simple way, how to transform a sleeve into a backpack, or a skirt into a hand bag. Concerning the textile aspect, I chose to play on tone on tone prints which makes them discreet, to illustrate the process of our cyborg woman who is slowly finding back her humanity. I also played on layering different fabrics in order to produce a kind of «techno effect» by creating colors variations which you can obtain with movement, or simply depending on the point of view.

"Who am I ? Thinking as a human, acting as a robot. I am a machine with a soul, with a heart beating to the rythm of an algorithm. I found my HUMANECTION, I know who I am, I am SOFTHERA."
