In summer 2021 I went to San Marino Comics, a comicon which takes place in the historical centre of the city state. Here I saw a lot of cosplayers and a lot of tourists that weren’t aware of the exhibition. So this created a magical atmosphere in which a lot of people were unkowingly transported into a fantastic dimension, were pop culture icons and characters from various fantasy world come alive. The collection aims to fuse together the everyday fashion of the tourists with the striking costumes of the cosplayers. To represent the fashion landscape i used the nine symbols of the district of the city, also called castles (as how they are called by the natives), to create patterns and decorations made by beads.
