HETEROTOPIA :: SS_20 @ BRAZIL_ Jul 2018
(Hetero) = Other; (Topia) = Place
"Heterotopia" is a concept of human geography, which describes places and spaces that function in non-hegemonic conditions.
The philosophy uses the term "heterotopia" to describe spaces that have multiple layers of meaning, or of relations between different places, and which complexity can't be seen imediately.
These are the spaces of the alternatives, which are neither here nor there, which are physical and mental at the same time, such as the space of a telephone call, the moment in which we see ourselves in the mirror, or our relationship with the digital surfaces.

This lecture is presented as part of "Cultura de Moda Contemporânea" studies cycle from Instituto Rio Moda, Niteroi. Fabric is presented as a starting point for thoughts about social and economic changes illustrated by the contemporary fashion system. Why do we wear what we wear? How did we get the fabrics that are currently available in the market and what impact can we expect from textile technology in our lives? New ways of fabric creation and manipulation are presented in order to stimulate interaction and intervention from designers in their own materials.
SMALL & MIGHTY - AW1718 @ PARIS_Feb 2016
The return of consistency in speech, the interest in creating a better present. Vanity makes space for the collectivity of differences, and voices that weren´t heard before now speak louder. The empowerment of those who were silenced before offering other possibilities to fashion and creation of new combinations that are full of energy. I don't need to be the same all the time, I have the freedom to keep many versions of myself. I don't need to be or have my actions validated by others when I already feel plenty on my own.The emotional experience reconfigures an aseptic technological future, making an astronaut suit with African print possible.
