The Armor skirt

July 15, 2016

What do you do with your old toilet paper cardboard rolls? We made this skirt inspired by medieval armor and paired it with one half of a jute coffee bag as the top, giving a masculine look to the ensemble with its wide shoulders. We then dressed a pair of sandals in traditional

Easter eggy dress

April 27, 2016

Inspired by Easter festivities, we created the “Eggy dress”, the bottom part is made out of egg boxes in three different colors. The top part is made out of three pairs of stockings (black and beige) worn one on the top of the other to create the sheer effect, cut-out

Marry X-mass

January 5, 2015

This Christmas is a very hot one! The re-used mosquito net served as a Christmas tree decorated with some apples hanged on the inside of it. The necklace is also a Christmas decoration and the long red gloves are in fact leggings. Mila, the model, did her own hair and

that poison ivy…

September 8, 2014

We went Poison Ivy, a bit unintentionally though, Mila is a red-head already. So the idea came up because we have this beautiful old ivy on the adjacent wall to where the pictures are taken, in the garden. I put a metal string around her and just put branches in between Mila and the

a barbie doll

July 1, 2014

Pink plastic bags make a hell of a dress with the brown sandpaper belt. We actually went around the stores to ask for pink bags and a butcher gave us dozens! We hanged them on two metal strings to make the top and the skirt. The retro chair prop comes

the savage gardener

September 7, 2013

Renato is a landscape architect with a distinct personality, a friend from years before. He brought his props, went all over the place, took off shirt and shoes. It was a friendly photoshoot that went crazy. Styling was done by him, photographs by me. We did the edit together with Mila. Photographs by me.

the leather pants

July 28, 2013

A little bit of rock style with these plastic garbage bag pants supplement for the famous leather pants, with a green mosquito net top and a green lipstick. Mila, the model, did her own hair and make-up and we styled her together from the ready-made we found around my family house.

robotic

September 12, 2012

This garment was made out of an old architecture model of mine that finished in my father’s basement (the white cardboard with holes), and some black basics like old stockings that we butchered to get these shorts and stuff our heels in the rest of them to make them black.

the summer hula hoop look

September 6, 2011

A young and fresh creation out of a piece of yellow curtain – the hanging part, and a stripy textile we just put on Mila the model, and clipped on the back. It’s an easy garment, less experimental than the usual ones, so we added a playful prop – a hula hoop,

a trip to amazonia

August 17, 2011

This dress was made out of a silky material and a hank of rope with which we just tightened it around Livia. She is my oldest friend ever. I didn’t want to cut the rope because I just borrowed it from carpenters’ of my parents’ company, so I hooked it

wooden hood

February 14, 2011

We taped Mila in with a few rolls of brown plastic tape to make this short fitted dress. It was the winter season so my dad had some wood stored where we usually take photos of our fashion creations, which made for a nice background. Mila, the model, did her own hair

the paper dress

September 14, 2009

The first creation Mila and I ever did was this paper dress, made out of newspapers we stapled to the wire construction that gives the dress this ball gown shape. Then we added a red bow with a wire structure too. Mila, the model, did her own hair and make-up and
