Values like endeavor, team work and authenticity are important to her as well as the recuperation of handicraft techniques and they all form part of her manifesto.

COLLECTION – I HAVE A DREAM
 

A collection inspired by the figure of Martin Luther King and the struggle for African-American civil rights that became a denunciation of injustice in the Catalan political process.
The deconstructed forms result from an intense work on patronage of a collection that starts with irregularity. The unfinished pieces have a metaphorical sense of a living creation process.
Printed messages show the meaning of the collection.
Fabric woven from ribbon symbolizes oppression, which is also worked in macramé with metal applications. There is research into the combination of latex with pleated silk.
Colors are inspired on the earth and black and white as a metaphor for Apartheid.
