About Me

HI, I'M RAFFAELLA PETRACCARO A GRADUATE FROM IUAD, NAPLES.

I have always been attracted to everything that includes visual communication, I love to observe, absorb and rework everything I see so for me drawing is the last piece that allows me to rearrange all the inspirations I absorb. My ideas come mainly from everyday life.

I like to get involved in any field, because I can draw lessons from everything. Fashion is an interest that I am developing little by little, because I got to know this world through my passion for design objects and architecture. The accessory is the field of fashion design that allows me to express myself at 360 degrees. I like to create both women's and men's collections, although I feel closer to the latter category. The keywords, therefore, to describe me and the path I am building are: color, shape, action and transformation.

INSPIRATION

My research comes from a reflection on the ambition of the individual in relation to society.

The actions carried out for the good of the community are actually carried out for the good of the individual, this is a concept that I have been able to deepen especially in this pandemic period and therefore I ask myself: "was man born as a social animal?" who thinks that yes, man is already born with a propensity towards others, and who, like the philosopher Hobbes, believes that man is born in the guise of a beast: alone, selfish and with an innate fear of death.

According to the philosopher, a man born with these characteristics in contact with society can only generate war and therefore "Homo homini lupus est" (man is a wolf for man). Man therefore selfishly chooses to limit his ego and live with the other, only for fear of death. I therefore want my collection to act as a negation of an apparent collective facade, aimed at masking feelings such as ambition and selfishness that are revealed above all in the world of work

DETAIL

THE STORY OF THE HHL MAN

Victor Huges, 36, is a normal man with a thirst for success ready to do anything to change his social standing. Working as a clerk in a New York bank, he discovers confidential information that allows him to blackmail the bank's CEO, gaining a prominent position in exchange for his silence. Over the years, Victor's career continues amidst cheating and vices. One day, however, Victor will be caught cheating and arrested, thus losing the only thing he had: success.

"We do not seek society for the sake of it, but for the praise or benefits it could bring." -Thomas Hobbes
