ABOUT ORIENS

 

 

ORIENS EMBODIES A MODERNIZATION OF ITS LATIN ROOT, MEANING "RISING" FROM THE VISION OF THE EASTERN RISING SUN, TRANSLATED IN EVOLUTION INTO NEW HORIZONS, EXPLORING THE SPACE OF SUCH BORDERLINE, AND THE PERPETUAL FORWARD MOMENTUM TOWARDS THE FUTURE.

 

 

ORIENS SEEKS TO EXPLORE A FUTURIST SPACE BASING UPON THE CONNECTIVE AND DICHOTOMOUS RELATIONSHIPS OF CLOTHING AND BODY, TRADITION AND EXPERIMENT, BIOLOGY, TECHNOLOGY AND THE ARTIFICIAL.

 

IT CREATES FOR A FUTURIST VISION OF FEMALE SENSUALITY, EMPHASIZING FORMS AND DETAILS OF THE BODY WITH CUTOUTS AND MULTI PANELED SILHOUETTES TO SHAPE, INTERACT, AND REVEAL.
