This collection talks about the loss of innocence in humanity. Mickey, as world iconic figure represents that, and I turn him more into a hedonist Mickey, it looks for pleasure no matter the consequence. I have lived my life through several experiences and come to realise that excess will never fulfill you. I question that in this collection, even using several known figures like Jim Morrison, James Dean and Marylin Monroe symbolizing this innocence lost, as it ended in death.
In 2016 I created some masks, as a representation of this hedonism. I travelled to London last October and wore the masks around the city, only to realize that my personality changed when I had it on. This made me realize I still had layers of fears from my past that were obstacles to my true self.
Thanks to this experience I’m bringing 350 masks to the NYC show with the objective of creating a new introspective atmosphere. I want people to look within themselves and not outside as we always do. No judging and no fears of how to act, no labeling of others and leveling every one of us to the same premise that we are all one and equal.
