Artist statement

Creation period: 06/01/2020-08/01/2020

This gender fluid resort collection includes both swimsuits as well as sportswear garments. This group of garments are not gender specific, as they are intended to be worn by anyone who enjoys them and feels comfortable enough to wear them. As a designer with various  intersectional aspects of my identity, having both Latino and African heritage, and identifying as a non binary Individual, I have made it a goal to help break down the rigid walls society has placed around gender through my work.

 

Sheer Deceit is a visual representation of many different emotions and situations I have been working through during this strange, chaotic, and transitional phase in my life.

The garments in this collection are made out of knit or faux leather fabrics. They are all made from larger remnants or scraps from personal or donors fabric collections. These pieces of fabric could have easily ended up in the landfill, Instead

I challenged myself with the task of designing with scrap materials. 

 

This collection includes fully realized looks. These are made up of twenty eight garments, eight body harnesses, and one purse. Each one can be separated from the original design and can be mixed and matched to create a variety of unique outfits.
