ATELIER TALKS : audrey giordano / PARIS - INSPIRED BY THE POETIC SIDE OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND HUMANOIDS
WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO STUDY FASHION DESIGN ?
From the age of 3 I was having fits to get dressed, I was never in agreement with the choice my parents, I already wanted to choose what I wanted to wear. Around 14 years old I started to draw models. I bought fashion magazines at a very young age, cut them out and made collages. I had a very young interest in creativity rather than learning lessons. After the baccalaureate, it therefore seemed obvious to me to be in fashion because I was passionate already since very young.
After a general ES baccalaureate, I studied at the school ESMOD Lyon where I obtained a degree in Fashion Design & Creation.
WHERE DID YOU DRAW INSPIRATION FOR YOUR GRADUATION COLLECTION?
My collection is inspired by artificial intelligence. I asked myself the following question: "Should humanoids resemble us to be accepted in our societies, or should they keep their machine traits? The humanoids created today have an ultra-human appearance that goes as far as the feeling of disturbance or even rejection for us Westerners. Scientists have called the space surrounding the robot and the human "the valley of the strange". So I imagined a collection for a humanoid of this kind mixing the codes of the robots and the codes of the human, in order to bring a softer and more poetic side. The idea was to go beyond this valley of the strange and why not arouse an emotion against this robot.
