The inspiration behind this collection is connected to my Italian roots and my childhood memories. Exploring my Catholic heritage as well as religious beliefs and traditional celebrations, allowed me to create a modern and contemporary collection.

The visual imagery I collected is mainly related to the elderly people and their attitude to engage with religion in later life. The final outcome is the meeting point of juxtaposing elements: tradition and modernity, fluidity and severity, fragility and strenght.

The aim of my collection is to celebrate the value of past memories, indispensable to establish the present and revive the future. The colors are mainly drawn from the Christian iconography and visual representation of the Vergin Mary: the choice of fun, bright and loud

shades contributed to the creation of a bold wardrobe composed of voluminous silhouettes and an injected dose of modernity.
