BORAMY VIGUIER pre-fall 2021
“Fashion often guarantees freedom.
We like fashion because it is freeing the body of women, men, minorities, gays, trans,…
I have the idea that we are not that free. We have the illusion of being free.
We are dominated by forces that outrun us. Forces that are bigger than us.
We are acting only because those political, economical, climatic and mystic forces allow us to do so.
What really interests me in Fashion is to know how human beings are going to dress up considering this lack of freedom. That is why I love so much utilitarian clothing. Especially when the use is spiritual. An Imam, a priest, a monk, a sect preacher, do not choose their outfit.
Their function is stronger than their freedom.
This is when I found clothing the most interesting.
I think what really interests me in life is when human beings are dealing with those constraints.”
