Dresses hung in the duality of the dark, in the indefinite time between the darkness of death and the one where the seed germinates, telling the evolutionary stages of an uncertain and inescapable wait, comparable to that of the metamorphosis of a chrysalis.

As an impenetrable armor, the use of the leather and of the embellished rubber give rigidity to the figure, which contrasts with flowing fabrics like satin and silk chiffon, light and fragile as the wings of an insect.

Visions between the end and the beginning is an assemblage of runaway perceptions due to ancestral reminiscences, positive sensations of events which have no place nor time, abstract visions in the primitive darkness of rebirth, a symbol that characterized the final work of collection FW 13/14

About the designer

Claudia Danna finished her BA Fashion Design in 2013. She began her career studying art history, but soon this interest, driven by the desire to experiment, evolves in fashion and illustration.

Her work has the peculiarity to be inspired by natural elements and the animal world, going through the esotericism, alchemy and symbolism. Her clothes are recognizable by the combination of synthetic or recycled materials such as rubber, plastic or resin. Her study focuses especially on embroidery and applications that showers the garment with expressivity and reshapes the silhouette with forms and volumes inspired by the avant-garde and, at the same time, by ancestral ideas, that reminded archetypes and symbols imprinted in the human mind.
