Freelance Embroidery Collection
Saloon 33
Brazilian e-commerce Saloon 33 commissioned a capsule collection with focus on commercial embroidery design for a high street costumer. Full control was given to all decisions about the collection: selection of fabrics, design of garments, technical drawings, development in liaison with factories, styling and production of shoots. Pieces from the 'Galaxy Gang' collection have been worn by internationally known Brazilian celebrities like rapper Flora Matos and Karol Conka (who opened the Olympics Ceremony in 2016). Many items are already sold out in all sizes. Link to shop: http://saloon33.com.br/categoria-produto/colecoes/galaxy-gang-carmen-manzano/
