Asymétrie: dress people up with grace and technique
Asymétrie is first and foremost a story of passion. A story that began a few years ago, when I discovered around me a fantastic world in which to start playing with scissors and buttons. My doll was a mannequin that I enjoyed dressing with leftovers of fabrics and pins. It was a small universe made of fantasy that, with the seasons, changed in colors and textures: in winter soft and warm fabrics in dark colors, in summer light and colorful fabrics.
Over the years I continued to live that world through the eyes of my mother. As I grew up the hours of play were gradually replaced by hours of study, and with the beginning of the university the time to devote to this world disappeared. But, as they say, the heart is not commanded. And so, after a degree in civil engineering, my doll and I found a way to meet again. So I chose the Accademia di moda (Fashion Academy), where I learned the technique of moulage, a sartorial method that allows you to make paper models directly on the mannequin. So the leftovers of cloth gave way to pattern paper and increasingly refined fabrics and I gradually dedicated myself to the splendid art of dressing people with grace and technique.
That’s how I made my first blouse, made of geometric lines and large volumes, which gave its name to my project Asymétrie, in which I merged the knowledge gained during my university period with my passion for fashion. In this journey, undertaken a few years ago, three elements taken from my past have become faithful travel companions: my precious mannequin, the press for making buttons by hand in fabric given to me by my mother and a magnet pin holder that she had received in turn from her father.
Asymétrie is the testimony of my will to make the past alive in my present and to transform my child’s game into reality.
