Transitional moment from childhood to adulthood, teenage years are a period of doubt, experiences and emotional crisis. At that moment the teenage bedroom becomes a refuge. It is an ambiguous place and it shows elements of the teenagers’ self construction. This is the first opportunity for the teenager to create his/her own world. Each element is a sign.
My garments take the spirit of the teenage bedroom out of the house, so that it can be worn. They express this choice of an anti-choice, to not comply in a preexisting box but to create a personal stylistic box, exposed to others. A proud state of construction vindicating a lack of beauty related to doubt and experimentation. It’s a demonstration of an emotional complexity which reveals the difficulty to deal with ambiguous feelings, which arouse attraction and rejection. A raw and spontaneous folklore. A tradition of a teenager in conquest of him/herself. A familiar pop culture, source of identity and positioning. Of teenagers and adults.
