We have a talk with young Australian designer Demetra Kakopieros
, who has some strong and clear views on fashion. The first thing you notice is that Kakopieros has an ethical approach to fashion, which is not very common. She is fiercely against animal exploitation in the industry, and aims to explore artistic, spiritual, political and philosophical questions through her innovative work. She lets her irrational side take her to new and unexpected places, and the result is a brutal, unsettling and mystical aesthetic. We could say her creations are reactions to how she experiences the world around her: full of contradictions and opposite forces always trying to find balance.
