Martina Bavaro is a freelance fashion designer lgraduated at Istituto Marangoni in Milan. During the last year in the prestigious fashion school she was selected among the best 40 students to present her collection at Fashion Graduate Italia and, in the next year, to exhibit at Milano Unica.
She loves the feminine silhouettes but with a decisive modern imprinting, without forgetting wearability, comfort and elegance. Her design method is different, working from the moulage on dummy to the final sketch, building with easy modelling shapes and giving importance to fabrics and textures.
Her collection is inspired by the symbol of Yin e Yang: she build the silhouettes joining together two circles and creating the shapes through experimental draping, focusing on the shape’s perfection and the particula fabric manipulation.
Also Martina will be with us at GDD Fashion Week as Special Guest of the Gala Evening and member of the fashion contest Jury. We can’t wait to see her collection on catwalk!
