From an early age linked to the artistic production, Inês Manuel Baptista graduated in Art History from the University of Coimbra. Her creative language expands beyond fashion. She was a dancer and teacher of classical ballet, having been part of her career the design of dance costumes.
Emphasizing the need to enrich her career in the world of art, she found in fashion a new way of expression, bringing her narratives to life through her creations. In 2018 she joined the Master in Fashion Design at the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Lisbon.
3451, or '3 Seconds To a 45 Watt Lamp at a Distance of 1 Meter', is a personal interpretation of the effect of solarization on Man Ray's photographic work. Solarization originated in an accident, by exposing an image for too long, and Man Ray was the first to use it for an artistic purpose. Thus, this collection tries to recreate the sensation of disincarnation of images, reinforcing their mystery and transporting the viewer to a parallel world, a space that allows him to reflect and search for new meanings in the delicate acceptance of the real, incorporating the paradox between fantasy and reality.
