Guillem Turró Casanovas
Dedicated Footwear Design Graduate (First Class Honours) with a strong background in Graphic Design. Very influenced by twentieth century visual culture (specially Dada, Surrealism, Pop and Postmodernity) with a special interest in identifying society’s expectations regarding fashion, trying to understand and anticipate them.
The final collection presented, Postmodern Cabinet of Gay Curiosities is inspired by how from the late 1970s to the early 1990s a generation of queer personalities redefined the fashion industry of Postmodernity. The art, fashion, cinema and music of this time and the gay men behind it have always been my greatest source of inspiration and by far my favourite topic to research and learn about. Unfortunately and very sadly they had the disgrace to live the outburst of AIDS without knowing how to prevent it, which put a lot of them in early graves and stole their genius minds from the rest of society. The purpose of this graduation collection is to pay homage to them creating women’s shoes inspired by their unique talent.
Shoes made with the collaboration of: Angela Casanovas, Georgina Goodman, George Mouglis, Ilias Iliazi, Nafi Mustafa and Paul Thomas.
Photoshoot and video with the collaboration of: Victoria Salsas, Lucía Barrenetxea, Adriana Ventura, Dimitriy Levdanskii and Anna Boatella.
