Hi, I'm Elisa Ventura and I come from a small village in the Marche hinterland, Sant’Angelo in Pontano (MC).
My passion for fashion was born when I was still in middle school. Then by attending the Art School with a specialization in Fashion Design I have increasingly cultivated this passion of mine, starting to discover its immense world. Thanks to a modeling teacher of mine, I discovered my passion for Experimental Modeling more and more, am able to play with volumes, contrasts and create patterns from 0 to give life to what was previously only a sketch.
Also for this reason my “Protection” woman collection is based precisely on the play of contrasts both of volumes and materials, giving life to garments with 3D shapes combined with soft, light garments that highlight the shapes and sensuality of the body. For this collection I started from an image of a very important photographer, Herbert Ritts Jr., "El Mirage" from 1990, with the aim of highlighting the sensuality of the body, but at the same time emphasizing the beauty of the forms, their plasticity and roundness; which in turn get lost with the surrounding nature, becoming a whole. The meaning of my collection is that with the simplicity of shapes and volumes you can highlight the soul of the garment and of the wearer.
My collection starts from the analysis of a shot by the famous photographer Herbert Ritts Jr., "El Mirage" from 1990.
With the aim of highlighting the sensuality of the body, but at the same time emphasizing the beauty of the forms, their plasticity and roundness; which in turn get lost with the surrounding nature, becoming a whole.
This wants to show how the body reacts to nature and how it tends to blend in but at the same time hide with it. The leitmotif of my Women's collection will be this contrast between garments with 3D volumes composed of rounded shapes that create a sort of shell, a shell that protects the veiled body below.
Each of us is an active figure of our planet and most of the time we don't want to show our true being but we try to defend ourselves from what is actually the stage of the theater of our life.
Protection, minimalism and union were the keywords that helped me in the realization of this project.
Studying, with the Designer Elisa Ventura, every detail of her collection and her style, I was able to create a shooting that had protection and sensuality as its central theme; all this was made possible also thanks to the play of the fabric, present in some shots, whose function was to protect the person.
For the branding part, I opted for a structured and geometric logo. The two sinuous lines are enclosed within a square that protects them.
I'm Carlo Valerio! I am a 21 year old boy and I was born in a small town in Abruzzo called Lanciano.
I decided to take this path in Naba, because the world of fashion fascinated and intrigued me from an early age and so I did. I am very happy to have made this choice which has led me to have new certainties and new knowledge, both in the school and personal fields.
