Gallery 2022 – SELIN Y.



The idea of this collection comes from a natural process: oxidation, which reflects the human experience. Humans get older, and so does our world. Therefore, for the sake of our future, we should seek for more sustainable ways to dress up.
CORROSION doesn’t reflect the meaning of life; it is the result of the process of living in time.
