Sara Yepes is a Colombian Fashion Designer student from Istituto Marangoni Firenze/Miami with a passion for research and relating topics to fashion and in that way creating conversations with her clothes.
Sara began her studies at Marangoni Miami where she encountered different cultures, ideas and expressions. It is there where she realized that her true passion was to investigate, find new ideas, combine and create dialogues where people can give their opinion without being judged but listened. In the same way, she is passionate about art and history and it was in Marangoni Firenze where she exploited this desire to combine various ideas and various areas where the human can immerse himself. And so she creates conceptual pieces that invite expression and interpretation.
Psychology is one of Sara's most interested subjects, reading about various concepts that define the human mind and its behavior is interesting, but combining this area with art and design makes it even more amazing. Creating a conversation between mind is her main objetive. As well as uniting people from various scopes.
It is here where the inspiration for this portfolio arises. After reading Analysis of a case of Hysteria by Freud, Sara is immersed in the explanation of how a human mind works, interpreting these concepts is a form of expression of her own being and creating a space where others can do the same is the purpose of this collection. Create a conversation that a thought is the most important thing she can do as a designer
In this way, creating illustrations depending on her vision towards these concepts was how the different types of graphics emerged in some garments. These prints are made by hand on canvas, using different types of materials including ink and acrylic.
