Garden of Earth is the first Spring Summer collection of up and coming fashion designer, Raquel Fernanda Inacio. This earthy, feminine collection was inspired by the spiritual belief of a utopian, harmonious earth and the idealisation of humankind connecting back with the wild splendour of Mother Nature.
By the incorporation of fleshy nude lycra silhouettes and colourful hand-made fabric botanics, Garden of Earth is a creative fashion exploration of the beauty of the nude human body living in peace among mother nature.
Shot by Alxe Paterimos, this romantic photographic collection was shot with the purpose of communicating the beauty and perfection that comes with living in harmony with planet earth, our fellow human beings and our true selves.
This collection was created with the intention of inspiring others to reduce their impact on climate change and halt current and future natural calamities, “I do believe that it is our responsibility to do everything in our capacity to reduce pollution and harm to our planet. Put plainly, I believe that the future of our planet, or ‘the new earth’ will be lived in harmony among nature and not against it. It simply cannot be any other way, as without the earth we will cease to exist” – Raquel Inacio
Garden of Earth embodies the designer’s personal belief that we are one with the earth and all its plants and creatures that call this planet home. It is representative of an idealistic reality where humanity undergoes a transformation of consciousness, an inner flowering so radical and profound that compared to it the flowering of plants. A utopian reality where human beings lose the density of their conditioned mind structures, social structures, gender norms and patriarchal beliefs and become unified with themselves, their fellow humans and planet earth.
“I believe, that if we manage to find a way to release ourselves of our ego and come back to our true selves, only then will we find peace and union with self and other, as union with mother earth and our fellow humans” – Raquel Inacio
