Inspiration: Wear to Work Meets Dystopia:

The essence of the collection draws inspiration from the very heart of everyday functionality—workwear. However, in this dystopian narrative, the concept takes an unforeseen twist. Ancient military uniforms and tactical gear, once symbols of order and authority, are
co-opted by the people. These resilient garments, born from a desire for survival and a rebellion against the status quo, serve as both armor and canvas.

Name inspired by fire, Lahar / ashi : forthcoming mudflow on the slopes of a volcano.

"This is Laharashi, a tale of redemption and the unyielding spirit of Mexico."

Intersecting Realities: In this imagined dystopian reality, the juxtaposition of utilitarian clothing with an insurgent spirit results in a collection that is both provocative and thought-provoking. As the world around us shifts, fashion too evolves to mirror the tensions and aspirations of society. The garments challenge conformity, blur the lines between necessity and expression, and demand a reconsideration of our perceptions.

It reflects not only the shift in the concept of work and utility but also the transformation of personal identity in the face of adversity.

Cultural Erosion:

A Surreal Blend of Eras: The dystopian scenario often juxtaposes advanced technology with ancient and mystical elements. Futuristic robots, vehicles, and weapons coexist with traditional samurai armor, mystical creatures, and otherworldly landscapes, creating a surreal and captivating visual experience.
