Artist Statement (Fashion)
Marina’s garments typically feature abstract shapes and bold colors inspired by the works of modern and contemporary artists. She also references Japanese aesthetic principles and philosophies such as Wabi-Sabi, minimalism, and gender-neutrality in her designs resulting in her boxy and geometric silhouettes.
Marina is constantly exploring conceptual ideas and the question of beauty, not only through garment designs, but also through the images she creates for her personal brand in collaboration with other artists.
