• 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.
