BLACK SWAN

At first, I was inspired by the movie Black Swan on how they played with emotions, however, as i went deeper into the movie i realized how beautiful the movements they created. All of the emotions,body, volumes, and spaces sync perfectly together. On the next day, as i was sitting on my couch gathering all the information about ballet movements, i found an interesting video of Alzheimer’s patient Martina Gonzalez, a former ballerina, who was transformed as she listened to Swan Lake. It is really amazing how powerful music and body works, even when the memory is gone, our body still remembers everything. Hence in this collection, my main approach is to create layers between body, emotions, and movements. And together this 3 keywords will become the perfect second skin that speak for your body.
