“Road Rage” is comprised of a black organza chest bind and garter-like bottoms, with a pale yellow puff cover-up. Inspiration is drawn from highway patterns and how they appear in the environment. In this case, the loops and crosses shape themselves around the model’s curves.
Sixty feet is the distance of this hand-sewn cording.
I’m not saying Isabel caused this traffic jam, but she definitely did not help speed it up. Be careful, it’s dangerous to look this good.

Meet the Designer
Just like most of my classmates, I knew I wanted to become a fashion designer ever since my childhood. For me, it started with making outfits for my Barbies when I deemed their original looks boring. I have struggled to maintain that same passion and transition it into the industry, as it is many, seemingly intrinsic flaws and insufficiencies are ever-present. I often feel that there is no need for new clothes and that trends are just a tool to increase consumption. To get me into the right creative mindset, I try to think of my designs as art pieces built around a figure, instead of specific articles of clothing. This has allowed me to explore my boundaries and to try and imagine a different future for fashion, one that moves away from mass production and attempts to redeem itself and all its negative impacts on the world.
