read the full interview below.

Where are you from?




What is the collection about?

With  “TAYOUSAI AW 18/19”, I wanted to create an elegant but still avant-garde and aesthetic collection, through which I wanted to represent a mixture of cultures, creating a duality. 

By blending elements of traditional Scandinavian minimalism such as sharp shapes with multicultural influences using dramatic and abstract silhouettes, creating a contrast inspired by the Argentinian gauchos.

What was your initial starting process?

I started by taking inspiration from the Scandinavian architecture, characterized by simplicity and monochrome colors. Furthermore, I integrated the essence of the Argentinean gauchos distinguished for loose silhouettes, layers, and embroidery. Including, fabrics of greatly varying weights such as the finest of silk, exclusive mink, and cashmere.

How did it feel to showcase on a runway?

Showcasing on a runway was an unexplainable feeling. I was very proud and excited to exhibit my collection. 

What do you want viewers to take away from your collection?

I wanted viewers to perceive a feeling of individuality, exclusivity, and mysteriousness. 

Where can readers find out more about you?

Furthermore, more information about me can be found on my online portfolio.
