Designed and produced Fall Winter 2015 Funky Soul Special Edition Collection to be launched that same year in NYC and Latin America. This project was followed through from design conception to its final retail presentation and editorial presence overseeing every step of the way.
Biologic is a marvelous project created by the Tangible Media Group from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.), in which I had the opportunity to collaborate at an early stage as a consultant for its conceptualization and macro aesthetic strategy: from sharing mood & inspirational ideas of bio-fashion, to its presentation execution from a performance standpoint.
Biologic has been highly regarded and featured as one of the breakthrough revelations of 2015. It has been highlighted as a key driver for 2017-2018 fashion forecast. For more information contact the Tangible Media Group at M.I.T. at: email@example.com
