This sketchbook was the result of my research within the “Disobedient Bodies” program at UAL CSM.
During the development of this collection I had the opportunity to visit the Balenciaga archive, which strongly influenced my design process.

by recreating a replica of one of the given house pieces - I built the pattern through oversving the garment and intuitively draping on a stand,
without any measurements given.
