Vanitas

The main aim of this project was to fuse art and fashion and to experiment with fabrics, shapes and embellishments. The collection was initially inspired by Ashkan Honarvar's collages and Fernando Vicente's paintings. Both artists combine beauty and anatomy of human body in their work and are not afraid to accept the darker side of human nature - the mortality.

Additionally, the inspiration for this collection is closely related to the personal experience of undergoing cist surgery.  In the end, the main focus of 'Vanitas' collection was on creation of 3D shapes in the silhouette and experimenting on unconventional fabric combinations.
