UPGARMENT is a project I started almost 2 years ago, it is basically an upcoming brand, which currently focuses on sharing my designs and perception about
clothing. It has been evolving through the pandemic period of time until now, equally and simultaneously with my personal style.
MY BELIEFS AND VISION
I believe garments shouldn’t be overshadowed by loud, thought-provoking statements or hollow graphics. The way you match tones, fabrics together, the way you present yourself in clothes ought to be intriguing itself.
Deciding to keep everything in oversized, often exaggerated silhouettes wasn’t accidental, random idea that came to my mind. During very initial phase of developing my personal style I’ve realised that I don’t want my clothes to enhance everybody’s appearance, attractiveness. I want them to cover body, make everyone else not think about a person’s figure and look first, but about the garment and the way people are matching pieces of fabric together.
SEWING AND FUTURE
Everything is being sewn by small companies located nearby my place, often only by one tailor. Through the last couple of months I’ve been studying fabrics and elevating my garments, thanks to that I am finally able to do what I wanted since the very start of Upgarment.
Although, I still haven’t shown majority of my samples and designs, I hope that this year will be particularly groundbreaking and that I would be able to entirely express myself by designing and styling garments.
