The History of the piñata. In fact, the picture of the piñata cat was my first inspiration for this project.
4. What do you think will be the challenge in the project?

5. What is your vision on ‘fashion’?
First of all Freedom!! It's about wearing your statment on your sleeve. The way we live, the ideals that we belive in, a mood...
It’s like Coco Chanel says: " I don't do fashion I am a Fashion"...
6. How do you personally define a “fashion clash” or “a clash with fashion” for yourself?
Something that works in between things we know and like and a moment in which they appear to be something completely different or strange. It's like staring in the mirror.
