Entry Description

• Before I started the "Shadows" collection I made a trip back home to Brazil and was inspired by clay tiles from my balcony, an object present in my everyday life growing up. After researching and doing a few trials I found that shell smocking reflected exactly what I was looking for. Since the tiles created shadows I started to incorporate it in the collection, developing shadows into feelings, as all started in a trip back home. It is a collection created by texture. The shell smocking will be present in different sizes or as a print. The silhouettes are draped, asymmetrical and suiting with a dropped waist. Combined with wool, silk, printed chiffon, jersey and a vibrant color pallet, the collection expresses emotions from the inside out.
