“Our desires are Orders” is a whimsical multidisciplinary work combining dance, sculpture and fashion, born from self-empowerment, after too many years in the restaurant business, serving others to the detriment of oneself. As a result, it brought a reflection about my personality and the desire to inspire and strengthen the feminine character.
