The Yasuní is part of the Amazon region in Ecuador, it is one of the most bio-diverse places in the world, and it is the place where varioust indigenous groups live in.
In the latest years this place started to be destroyed by oil companies in order to extract this product, not considering the affects it causes to its inhabitants. This tribes are getting shorter in number day by day. Using this as my concept, I decided to develop a sustainable collection which conveys a message for people to start caring about our environment, specially the amazon region as its being destroyed day by day. The main aspects of this collection are the mix of tribal wear from the indigenous groups from the Yasuni, workwear of oil workers and tailoring from the garments of oil corporation executives and politicians.
