Alice Biolo
...
Alice has been exploring the theme of pain, trauma, insecurities through her collections for the past year to spread awareness about mental health and open a conversation with the public, with the aim of normalised human emotions. The predominant characteristic of her creations lies in their simplicity and the absence of adornments on the front. The designs remain concealed on the back, eschewing any overt symbolism for the public and fostering an intimate connection solely with the wearer.
