Inspired by contemporary art
For her first seasons, Stephanie works around three major contemporary artists: Basquiat, Louise Bourgeois, and César.
From Basquiat, she takes the raw forces and translates it into an eclectic collection.
The work of Louise Bourgeois brings questions on the dark side and shadows of each and everyone of us.
Cesar, and the resins and plastics he uses, brings Stephanie to use advanced technological materials for her collection.
