About Me

Hi I’m Patricia, a young fashion designer from Cambridge School of Art

I was inspired by art movements such as the principles of Vieira da Silva and Gutai art, while translating “nostalgia of something you’ve never experienced, in hope for a better future.” Whilst capturing the movement of the garments to explore this unsettling feeling, associated with a utopian view of past decades that are portrayed in social media.

This self-critical project explores the removal of this “rose-coloured” view of a seemingly “better” past in earlier decades that is marketed by social media and the discontent for the present and anxiety for the future that comes when you promote this way of thinking.

INSPIRATION

My inspiration was to translate fear of missing out to capture clothing stuck in movement.

For the past years during my degree in Fashion, I’ve noticed when trying to research different decades that most of the photos portray a very “polished” view of something that never actually happened, thus making you miss the illusion of something but not the reality. I wanted to explore the removal of this “rose-coloured view” while incorporating movement to create distorted yet familiar garments.

I felt like the most appropriate way to portray this feeling was through movement, more especially through abstract art. I was inspired by Vieira da Silva’s mechanical work, which I interpreted with the exploration with direction on the corded fabrics, and the Gutai art movement, characterized by its expressiveness which I captured in the overall silhouette of the garments.

MY WORK

PORTFOLIOS

DETAIL

I explored mostly oversized corduroy fabric, referencing my garment research based in the ’70s.

For my photoshoot I wanted to capture an uncanny feeling of a nostalgic yet futuristic place in time, that has attempted to remove the “polishness” of the illusion and created a play with distortion and a foreign feeling, all while remaining playful and familiar.

“I’ve never done anything but dream. This and this alone, has been the meaning of my life.” Fernando Pessoa
