After studying visual arts at ECAL, in Lausanne, I just completed a BA in fashion design at la HEAD, in Geneva. I have lived in Athens, in Greece for 4 years when I was a teenage and this country and its culture marked by its past completely seduced me. I became obsessed with myths, incredible creative stories full of magic and wisdom, that stimulated a lot my imagination. Since those years, there is always a bit of that influence in my projects. Colors, letters, graphic and visual memories had been influencing constantly my creative universe. This collection was somehow the occasion to create a true tribute to that strong imaginary.
It was also an overview of my own interpretation of one of the biggest trend of those last decades : sportswear. More and more people are wearing clothes that are inspired by sportswear or made for an active use. I am particularly fascinated by how those clothes are worn by so many people, from such different category of style, but also mostly people who don't practice sports at all. This must be explained by this special energy that sports garment got and give off. For me, those sportswear garments with their fabrics, finishing, shapes or graphics, are a huge source of inspiration for fashion design, especially when it is freed from its initial usefulness. I want to carry on this design research, while maintaining as a challenge, the goal to give a fresh look to this trend.
