About Me

 
sofia lasserrot portrait.jpg

I am an experienced fashion/costume designer, art director, trend researcher and photographer; trained between Central Saint Martins, London College of Fashion (University of the Arts London, UK) and LIM College (Laboratorary Institute of Merchandising, NYC, USA).

I studied: B.A. (Hons.) Fashion Design and Communication, M.A. Costume Design for Performance, Cool Hunting, New Fashion Silhouettes and Experimental Fashion Drawing.

I love experiments and interdisciplinary collaborations.

In my opinion, the key to good design would be figuring out what is worth keeping from tradition and what may be rebuilt in order to evolve, therefore my methodology is based on historical research but there are strong performative and experimental elements in my work. Overall, I aim to preserve identity by translating it into a state-of-the-art visual language.

The use and understanding of colour as well as a certain degree of abstraction are vital to my process, enabling me to engage the audience into an ‘active emotional communication’.

During my career I have worked for Malta's National Theater, the fashion forecasting agency Trendzoom and the fashion firm Pilar Dalbat amongst others.
