Beyond the form

Two weeks after closing the store in Guimarães, the work continues on Melluns Atelier. In the last weeks we are trying moving to Oporto and open a new space, but until then we are preparing new products and acept some orders.

One of those orders is a piece for a very special client, he saw a dress in our store, an original piece of young brand Mishevous and fell in love for that. The dress was small for him, but he ask for a new one costum made. Is interesting find people with open mind that don’t mind with the fashion “gender” prejudices. The piece has a genderless aesthetic, but the size was for female body. Find this type of people is very important to us, because when you want made a genderless brand, is so nice have a feedback of the right people and feel their fellings, know their souls and how they thinking.

While we were testing the new pattern on our bust with light, we were inspired for the contrast between light and seams to take some photos. Is beautiful see the seams lit and how different the pieces look with lighting work. In the photos only can see the form and the construction, can’t see the prejudices associated with fashion, such like gender, body types, sizes, fits, etc. only see the beauty, and this is what really matters!
