From an early age, Ana Rita de Sousa showed interest in expressing herself through textiles materials. She attended the Soares dos Reis Art School, where she specialized in Plastic Arts applied to Performance and Shows. In 2017, she started the Fashion Design course at Modatex, Porto. Currently, she interns at Luis Buchinho's atelier.
It all begins with the choice and deconstruction of existing clothes. This process allowed to design the different silhouettes, shapes, volumes, sizes, colours and styles of this collection. Mutating classic clothes, always maintaining the functionality and the intrinsic characteristics making them up, is the inherent nature os this collection.
After the deconstruction and reconstruction of existing clothes, new clothes emerge, using new materials, but keeping the same purified, clinical, all-encompassing and changeable language. Almost as if it were a laboratory experiment, giving rise to exploration and experimentation.
