(I’M)PERFECT I am perfect because of my imperfection. 

The project is inspired by subservience to a number, the exasperating struggle against anorexia. 

Imperfection becomes the defining element of a desired and non-existent perfection. Perfection based on physical canons defined by humans in an abstract almost utopian way. 

The collection is developed on silhouettes characterized by a very tight almost constrictive shape and huge oversize jackets and coats into with the body gets lost. The design is essential but embellished with the use of manipulations, embroideries, prints and ruffles that convey the continuous sense of inadequacy of one’s body compared to an ideal model.
