Aurora Rakic

Hi there! I’m Aurora Rakic, I’m fashion designer and illustrator and I’m graduating at Naba - New Academy of Fine Arts in Milan.
I’m from Milan but my parents have foreign oringin: I’m half Ecuadorian and half Croatian.
I have been an artist since childhood; I had my first contact with the world of art as an Artistic High School student in 2014, where I developed a passion for video editing.
I joined the fashion world for the first time when I started working as a model for many brands. This experience has allowed me to understand all the work behind a fashion show.
I think everything around me can be an inspiration and I can transform an emotion, an experience or a sound into a texture, a shape or a pattern for my fashion colections, through which I try to send a message or to denounce something.

SOCIAL DISTORTION

Social Distortion collection is based on a different reality from what we are used to, and which shock us.
During the lockdown, the population was forced to close in their own homes, isolate themselves from society and no longer have external contacts. While normally isolated individuals have had a chance to live cities, stopping to be invisible beings. For example, in a shopping center one would expect to see many people intent on spending money, but when we are faced with people who are usually ignored because they are imprisoned in the dark corners of cities there is a strong reaction. Seeing a shopping center populated only by homeless people one is stunning, almost frightening, but only because of a concept of an image given by the society.
I analyzed the gaze we have towards those individuals who are now marginalized, that distortion of the image that occurs when we are faced with something we are not used to.

Milan, Italy

Hei there! I’m Federica, I’m 23 and I was born in Milan on April 15th, 1999. I studied languages in high school (English, Spanish and German) and now I’m attending the last year of the bachelor's degree Fashion Styling and Communication at NABA - New Academy Of Fine Arts in Milan. Passionate about fashion since I was a child, I think everything around me can be an inspiration and a starting point for great ideas.
