Artist and Fashion Designer
Born and raised in Mexico City, Sabrina Olivera (1994) is a Brooklyn-based fashion designer. Throughout her life, she has always been fascinated by the potential that clothing, fabrics and textures have to tell stories that can impact society in positive ways. One of the results of this effort was Selfie, a multimedia fashion, and art project that explored the theme of self-representation through social media. Sabrina chose to represent the tension between people from her personal life, and their social media presences, through the contrast between close-knitted fabrics and rigidly constructed wovens. The project earned a publication at Office Magazine.
Her latest personal and professional endeavor, however, is another fashion and art project called Soldaderas. Through the use of structures, textures, fabrics, and concepts, Olivera attempts to explore the way in which women fighters from the Mexican revolution dressed and acted, and how this spirit can still be found in women of this country in light of the epidemic of violence that they face every day.
