Grand Prix du jury Première Vision 2019
This collection is about building a character, the journey of an innocent child, free from intentions or expectations, finding oneself through a mechanism of self-defense, of masculine appearance while finally embracing his femininity.
The story is told through characters, the good and the bad, each character representing one step of the evolution. It questions the role of the catholic church and their behavior towards LGBTQ people and how it can traumatise them. Finding strength in the dark times, being aware that confusion, emotional pain, and being treated poorly can make you stronger and know how to use bad feelings as something that lets you grow. The collection is showing this transformation and different stages of becoming who I am now.
