Footwear, Accessories, Millinery & Eyewear

My collection is a portable gym. The initial inspiration for it, as well as the materials I’ve realised it with, came from the fitness world. The main material is natural rubber, which is 100% environmentally friendly. The aim of the collection is to give fashion accessories a new definition, as well as extra functions beyond those of a container, such as allowing the user to exercise. 

The whole collection is transformable in order to meet people’s different needs. These accessories participate in the user’s life, they’re interactive objects not only when we wear them, but also when we play with them. 

In the future, I would like to further explore methods of developing accessories with extra functions, and lead more and more people to understand the crucial role that functionalities, as well as aesthetics, can play in the fashion field.
