Saccaggi: Drawings, Details, Decisions
Although there is obviously an infinite amount for me still to learn, the construction of clothing is something I’m pretty skilled at, having been goofing around at this since I was 6. Yet how on earth such a skill is incorporated or transformed into a viable business is something I have absolutely no idea of. Although this sometimes weighs me down with self doubt, it is possibly my biggest asset. As I blindly navigate these new waters, I feel unhindered by constraints of ‘normal’ practice and am forced to conceive of strategies based on directly relevant observations.
Emotional divulging aside, Disrobed is as much an experience as it is a product. It is at the same time a showcase and an insight. It is both my exploration of how the production of a collection would work, as well as your ability to see into the walls of the studio.
