Introducing designer Angelo Castro and his Flirt ’21 timeless collection. “Conceptually I am inspired by emotional connections and the meaning of things. Giving rise to the meaning that nothing is completely detached from nothing, everything is connected to something, to a form, to a being, to an instinct… “
Nothing is by being or happens by happening.
Nothing is fortuitous.
There are conscious or unconscious connections.
Flirt connects me with the energy of my ancestors and what I project in my future.
For this collection I worked with disused textiles from factories closed in times of pandemic. I also gave a new meaning to all the waste from my previous collections.
Starting from a place of rethinking and transformation of menswear.
The construction and philosophy of my garments are aimed at anyone who needs to communicate and support the environment. I work with local labor and craftsmanship.
“My name is Angelo Castro, I was born and raised in a small town in the coastal mountains of Venezuela. Due to the great economic and political problems of my country I was forced to leave in search of a better future.
For the last 8 years, I have been living in the city of Montevideo, Uruguay. This beautiful country allowed me to study and start my way as a designer. Thanks to perseverance and hard work I can present two collections in Fashion Clash in 2018 and 2019.
Today I find myself in a new stage, launching the 3rd collection in times of pandemic. A bit ironic but true, the pandemic helped me rethink my vision as a designer.”
