Name of the Brand: Galine Galine Name of designer/s: Galine Vartanian Instagram handle: https://www.instagram.com/galine.galine/ Number of years in business: Start-up Name of University if any: Academy of Art University San Francisco, California – Master’s of Fine Arts, Fashion Design ESMOD (École Superieure de la Mode) – Bachelor of Arts, Fashion Design and Pattern Drafting, Specialization: Womenswear What makes your brand unique / what inspires you to create your work: As a research oriented fashion designer, I am never satisfied creating with just material subjects such as colors and shapes. My designs evolve around philosophical ideas that question the nature of beauty and fashion and are inquisitive of cultural and social issues. For me, Designing is an artistic expression that transcends medium and is intertwined with a philosophy that stimulates not just the eye but also the brain. What techniques do you use (special fabrics, prints, fabric dyes, knits etc..): I use unconventional 3D draping techniques and my designing process oscillates between 2D and 3D. I love incorporating contrasting elements and optical illusions which give my pieces a witty and whimsical edge. Any social enterprise, recycled materials, sustainable production: My brand is not only about unique aesthetics but also the embodiment of distinctive values such as care, compassion and ethical consumption. As a socially responsible entrepreneur, I find it essential to take into consideration the underprivileged consumer’s point of view. I am a Zero Waste Cutting enthusiast and I have been practicing this method for the past several years.
