A collection of hats built upon the idea and inspiration of an imaginary world and society, set far in the future. A world of mystery and dreams, where it is impossible to distinguish between what is reality and what isn’t, with blurred lines separating what is authentic and what is just an illusion.

The hats are all made of felt, and are created with clean lines, interesting shapes and minimal details. The subtle details and decorations are made using glass beads and tulle, to emphasize the idea of this luminous and ethereal imaginary world.

Arif Kara: Ancyra

Ancyra is a project inspired by Ankara city, culture and people.
Preferences of people in their clothing are influenced by the characteristics of the geography they live in and the cultures that are shaped by the history.
In this project, designs were shaped with the help of some key words obtained from the geographical and cultural examination and analysis of the target group.

Adriana Sánchez Ojeda: Memories of Home

A mini collection made out of almost all genderless pieces inspired by the home/mother figure.

Pieces that can be worn not only as a garment, they can be seen as a refuge, they will take us back to the concept of the mother.

With cocoon silhouettes, making references to a pregnant woman’s womb, a Virgin’s Mantle covering and protecting her child.

The fabrics and textures make allusion to elements and objects that we can find at home; from paper, curtains, tablecloths, tapestry, blankets, cushions, lace, aprons, crochet cloths, plants, photographs and quilted elements that provide us with a warm, soft, cozy, cushion like, supportive feeling which represent not only the mother and her warmth but also the bond between a mother and her child.

As for the graphic part, this collection is inspired by the woman’s naked body.

A body seen as a desirable, voluptuous, a fertility goddess who is being looked up to, respected and loved. The woman as a Venus. The concept of the body and the pure nature of a naked woman being conceived as a creator of life, a protective one comes from a recent textile project in which I developed a series of textiles being manipulated in order to represent the woman as a mother taken from the concept of artist Louise Bourgeois among many other artists.

Local fabrics handicraft should be conserved and supported because they have a unique feature which is different from other kind of fabrics.

The fabrics have vivid colours and fantastic patterns.

Even with the advantages of modern technology, their beauty can not be reproduced.

I developed this project in Thailand where I have leaned different kind of local handicraft techniques , I then ,through workshops, transmitted those techniques to the youngest , I have work with high school students and undergraduates with the aim of remembering the wisdom featured in each fabric.

For this project I focused on 3 kind of  fabric creation. Praewa weaving was trained for undergraduates. Stamp and Stencil were trained for secondary school. Then, Tied and dyed were trained for lower secondary school.

From this experience I have created a fashion collection that I have named: Trans-Thai
