    Human Figures in Motion

    My collection is inspired by human figures in motion. I was collecting images by taking pictures of people in public spaces in New York and making collages. I became fascinated about making clothes based on those collages. I was also inspired by sculptures by Isamu Noguchi, who also depicted human figures in motion. I found the connection by coincidence. I worked on the designs from a 360-degree perspective to achieve unexpected perspectives from the front, back and two side angles.
