Cuban designer debut Ready to Wear line in NYC

Normal Is Good is a project of fashion design that forces the boundaries between conceptual art and fashion.

Thanking in advance your consideration and warm support.

I started crafting my first women line in 2008 and debuted in 2009 with a small collection at the 10th Havana Biennial of Contemporary Art in Havana, Cuba.This line eliminates the purse as female accessory adding spaces or pockets hidden inside of each garment as an alternative way to carry our everyday objects.

I am currently involved in the production of a new collection to be presented as performance during the upcoming fashion week in NY. This time I introduce the print creating textile designs, which will serve for making the new clothes. 

Humbly and kindly, I ask you for your support. I need funds to help make this project possible because the printing process on the fabric is very expensive.  I have to buy the fabrics, paints and printing screens. Then take the screens and pay for the service in a printing lab consisiting in print the design text on the screen. Once I have ready the screen I begin to print the text design on the fabric using acrylic paint. But each screen has a limited use and must be discarded and replaced it with a new one until yards and yards of different fabrics are completely covered with the text design.

This is one of the highlights of my career as an artist and designer. I have the opportunity to launch my brand in one of the capitals of fashion, New York City, during the most important fashion moment event: NY Fashion Week. I have exhibited my work in 4th Gothenburg Biennial, 6th Liverpool Biennial of Contemporary Art, Bétonsalon Centred'art et de recherché in Paris, Art Basel Fair Miami, Show feMUSEum Project at Toynbee Studios, Tate Modern and Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club, Links Hall Theather.

I would like to invite you all to take a look at what I will willingly be offering in return for your generosity in addition to my deepest gratitude.

Project by Yali Romagoza

I'm interested in fashion as a legitimate mode of social expression and believe in its value as a language of art. I know its wide possibilities for experimentation beyond the commercial impact on their autonomy. I intend to subvert notions of what is right and not, what's appropriate and what is inappropriate in contemporary society.
