Collection – #1

This collection of one of a kind pieces is inspired in the different textures and levels of decay present in the dilapidated colonial mansions of Barrio Amón, a historic neighbourhood in Costa Rica’s capital. This collection is an abstract representation of human deterioration throughout time and experience, that hits too close to home.
Maria Guzman Since graduating, she has devoted herself to textile experimentation and the development of new proposals and techniques in the textile field. In 2014 she founded Austere Women’s Fashion, a brand that produces one of a kind clothes made with comfortable fabrics that allow mobility, comfort and practical day a day use. Austere's creations integrate new experimental materials and techniques in the textile field. Each daring piece reflects an eagerness to try something new -whether it be new materials, techniques or alternative forms of application-, even if it is unclear whether the idea will work or not, the results are embraced. It’s all about taking risks. Each product reflects the brand’s main inspiration sources: abstract ideas and urban environments in which mankind evolves each day. They showcase a deconstructed view of how we perceive the world, and our very selves.
