SELF KNOWLEDGE portrays the Designer’s inner world, questioning the insecurities, fears and uncertainties that have arisen after the conclusion of her academic career and the challenge of developing a new collection in a more solitary context.
The proposal goes through introspection and tries to understand where the creative block comes from, the doubts, the frustration and the eagerness to discover her identity and, above all, to get out of her comfort zone and decipher new means of expression.
The selection of different musical styles and different plastic approaches underlines different emotions that manifest the designer’s introspective journey. This journey, materialized through a diary of self-knowledge and organic illustrations, was the motto for the development of the collection.
