DESCRIPTION OF THE WORK
Psycho Nhomad is a womenswear collection inspired in a personal view of our society. After social networks have overtaken our lives, people focus more and more on their appearance, losing the essence of each individual, limiting ourselves to how society expects us to live and losing the capacity to act according to our feelings and our human nature.
Psycho Nhomad is inspired on the shapes of prehistoric paintings.I brought those volumes to garments that have been used for centuries. By decontextalizing those volumes I expressed a personal perception of how we live nowadays. Feeling the beauty of common things and photography have been some of the most important parts of my creative process.
In order to be fair to the concept and inspiration I’ve used noble materials as cotton and wool in order to be more close to traditional haberdashery and tailoring, giving me more freedom to experiment with the deconstruction and creation of the garments.
