Born in Lima, Peru, 1980; lives and works in Montreal, Canada

My work involves strong political content and constitutes a critical approach to fashion design and the construction and exploration of garments as performative and political devices. I am interested in broadening the understanding of the role of fashion-design objects, from the purely functional or aesthetic, outward toward social, ethical, and political perspectives. I seek to harness the agency of clothes and question the established language of fashion as experienced today. As a scholar of public health and psychology, I am particularly interested in addressing issues of body, gender, and biopolitics through the construction of garments that act as critical devices. My work combines fashion, art, and activism.
