ROYAL ACADEMY OF FINE ARTS ANTWERP . 3BA COLLECTION

 Casa de Carmen is inspired by my grandma Carmen and her immigration from Spain to California.

In the summer I found photos of the parties she would throw with her friends celebrating Spanish

extravagance in a fresh California setting. Using my own Spanish heritage, African costume

and wild materials, I wanted to portray my grandma and home through my own summer memories.

 This collection is about her and the vibrance and energy she poured into our warm California lives.

 

an enormous thank you goes to my family and friends,

 without whom this collection would have never been possible
