Non vedo Non sento Non parlo
“You take the blue pill the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe.
You take the red pill you stay in wonderland
and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes”
I’m Mery Saporito I’m a fashion designer & illustrator based in Milan. Since I was a girl I used to draw models and I used to place objects on the sheet as the dress. I started sharing sketches on Ig and brands like Valentino, Cavalli & others shared them on their feeds. I’m working with MiuMiu as illustrator to sketch live customers; I was the official Reporter for CMNI to illustrate during mmfw; I’ve collaborated with Oscar de la Renta at the age of 17. Now I’m writing my thesis in Fashion Design at NABA, I can’t wait to discover more about fashion.
The sound of fashion is silence: seeing silence as a form of communication, dressing is the art of communicating while not communicating. Dressing is a code and we still ask ourselves if and how this code can be translated.
I transferred this concept into a dystopic apocalyptic world, where people can't see, can't hear and can't speak and they are controlled by an anonymous entity who decides what they have to do. But then, they regain freedom.
The project is also a reflection about the world we live in today and how we are influenced by fashion, and also about the time of this pandemic, when we were feeling lonely, we had to follow rules, with the feeling of living in a dystopic world.
My communication project has followed this concept, by representing an individual performing tasks she was imposed to do, but giving to this world some '00 vibes. To achieve this, I worked with old computers, terminal screen images, old tv's effects and contrasts between black&white and green of clothes.
Hi! I'm Giulia Verucchi and I'm from Milan, Italy.
My passion for fashion has always been different, I've seen fashion from a psychological and anthropological point of view, asking myself: why humans wear clothes? What people want to communicate with what they wear? Why fashion is always seen as aesthetic?
From that, I started to be curious about what's behind fashion, the creative processes and the characters that make things happen, but also the production of clothes and what's behind what we wear everyday, hence people, industries, ethics, sustainability.
