The collection was inspired by the idea of the mythological abyss, Tartarus. Powerful beings with supernatural abilities are trapped behind strong walls that seem unbreakable. I correlate this to my life as an immigrant, of not being capable of showing everything I can offer.

Underneath there’s a matching top and bottom made of vinyl latex fabric. The color inspiration is emeralds found in Colombia.

This look was developed entirely on CLO3D, which allowed me to develop and manipulate a 3D model of my design. This video shows a turntable render of the jacket.

I was born and raised in a small town in Colombia, where a career in design was more of a fairytale than reality. I spent most of my childhood drawing and coloring under my father’s influence. When he gifted me a DVD compilation of Madonna’s greatest videos, I knew that creating and aiding people in the elements of their dreams was what I wanted to do. And that is why I chose fashion design, to connect individuals with their emotions and create worlds where everything is possible once you put on a certain garment.  I chose sportswear because I felt it was the best specialization in which I could develop my ideas and explore what I had been developing, deciding which is the exaggeration of the body silhouette, and which is the magnetism and intense sensuality of that same body.
