VANCOUVER FASHION WEEK | Honored guest

One of the special guests for the 2009 Vancouver Fashion Week with the SILVERWARE collection made with nothing but metal and representing a futuristic vision of warriors.

Metallic dresses made as a proposal to show a different view of fashion.  The main idea was innovating and creating a whole new perspective of clothes that can be wearable as well. The lightness, reflective and malleable properties from the metal, allowed high contrasts between lights and shadows in addition to a smooth gradient.

CREATIVITY SCHOLARSHIP | LaSalle College
 
Recognition for my avant-gard, straight forward and out-of-the-box creations made with recycled and other common materials together with the exploration of innovative shapes and silhouettes.
