Hector Diaz's collection titled: Dreamtopia is a "Deep Redux" that reflects the mind - looking back (Deep) and rethinking about all the dreams and ideas he/they had (Redux). Throughout the pandemic, Hector found himself/themselves constantly reflecting and looking back into the previous dreams and ideas he/they had. He/they wanted to rethink (or Redux) the way he/they made clothing, and truly redefine the meaning behind why he/they create. Clothing is simply a reflection of the unconscious mind given form. Hector saw his/their dreams as a form that awaited the knot to be tied down into reality. Through his/their experiences, he/they came up with a process he/they call dream weaving. It is the idea of taking secondhand clothing and garments, cutting them down to strips, and weaving the stripes on a hedge loom to create a new textile. Hector's entire collection is very personal to him/they as it was designed to reflect his/their dreams - all crafted from his/their hands - having no specific form, or gender - this collection is simply a dream come true.

How Kurriizma Turns Waste Into Fashion

A Dream Come True

Hector Diaz's collection is entirely hand made and purposefully sourced from secondhand garments and fabrics - specifically things that were going to be sent into the waste. All meticulously hand woven from over 450 garments to create these four outfits. Each look is inspired by a dream Hector had.
