I have imagined a silent society:
No one talks, screams, shouts. Talking reduces the time for thinking. Words and sounds that come from mouth just fly to the sky and create extra pollution. Fine arts such as painting/ drawing, sculpture, poetry and music (only the instrumental kind) are used as means of communication. Beside music, the only sounds one can hear are either from nature; animals, wind, etc. or non-living things. Since visualising thoughts takes huge part of the way of relating with others, one have to be perfect in this to explain oneself clearly, of course if one wants to be understood. The children directly start at fine arts school, again no one talks but everybody learns.
Daughter of the big city life, moved by a free nomad soul.
This is the woman who inspired the collection.
Technical textiles meet the primordial essence of the leather. Metropolitan chaos pollutes the pureness of white, uncontaminated materials.
Frail knit are intentionally snagged, as a result of a lifetime trip.
The collection is inspired by the art of Lygia Clark, as base to understand Lygia Clark´s work as process, creation and results to create a collection of garments and accessories. The collection aims at showing the interaction between the garments and the body and between one body and another.
The person that is wearing the garment can connect the different pieces of the garment, changing their functions to come up with a personal silhouette
During the research some of Lygia Clark works were selected. Some signs, ideas and conclusions of this specific works were used as the starting point of the creative process to the development of the pieces of garments. In the process to understand how it could be done, I used the ideas of interactions, visual modifications and extensions of the space as garment and as a limit between bodies.
I could not follow the usual pattern making construction for clothes; I needed to break the rules, as Lygia Clark broke the art rules in her time with her art pieces. The result is a collection of garments and accessories with the propose of interaction, visual modifications, and sensations using different materials, emphasizing not only the outward but also the functions of the pieces.
