NAWASHI fashion // 01

D E V E L O P M E N T // The inspiration came from the Japanese technique “Shibori” contaminated by an ancient erotic art called “Shibari”, in which the ropes are used both to hug and to tighten the body. I expressed the research of beauty and sensuality using cuts, ropes and many “Sashiko” details based on the shapes of the re-known Samurai’s traditional garments W H A T I L E A R N E D // Handmade dying techniques

AR.CHE.TIPO fashion // 02

D E V E L O P M E N T // Ar.che.tipo was the result of research about the behaviors and the attitudes of Milan young adults (20-30 yo). We took in consideration the relation between fashion and other sectors: wellness, food, design, electronics, social networks and its impact on retail, services and urban development. We interviewed and analyzed different case studies, and we created an Instagram account that express the concept of this trend . We found that this young generation seeks to create a new value of things by conferring dignity upon them. In addition, the mass use of smartphones is changing the language 3 people group
