In a single minute I discovered the work of biologist Emma Camp, and in a minute, “Horizonte” was born. It was the shocking images, the scary numbers and the desire to change that that inspired me for this collection. According to scientific studies, more than a third of the Australian coral barrier is dead. The death of a coral, in addition to a process of loss of microorganisms and habitats of different marine species, is a phenomenon of loss of color, because when a coral dies it becomes white and loses its thousand and one shades. Emma's job over the past few years has been to collect new corals from less favorable areas of Australia, such as rivers, and plant them again next to the reef, so that coral species can grow back and fight the white spot that has invaded the seas of the Indian / Pacific Ocean. This collection presents a fluidity of shapes and materials such as the lightness of the corals that move with the waves of the sea, the frills and layers represent the shapes that the corals create among themselves. The colors refer to their natural state and the white to the death of the corals. It is also a collection that addresses diving clothing and accessories that refer to Emma's work to harvest and plant new corals.
