I am pretty much In Love with the Croatian born designer Damir Doma. Growing up in Germany and working with Raf Simons, his work is amazing and is extremelly influencial on my current designs. Within his garments he reflects the human body whilst exploring contemporary masculinaties... sounds slightly familiar...

I'm currently manipulating images that I have either drawn/ photographed. Im aiming to create imagery that makes the male body look, almost, transparent so you can see not only internal bone structure and organs but architectural structures also. Creating the concept that the male body is a man-made measurement. Exploring Da Vinci's theory of 'man as a measure for all things', the male body as on object, a measurement.

From top to bottom: Ann Demeulemeester, Romain Kremer, Julius, Katie Eary.
