Maia Rivera’s collection, titled Body and Psyche, focuses on the complexity of the human body and psyche, with the goal to address the human connection between the brain and body and how it directly relates to our emotions, environment, and connections with others around us. A great amount of inspiration was drawn from imagery displaying human anatomy, depictions of the human connection, and scientific writings/articles. To deemphasize gender, there is a focus on the inclusion of more simple shapes paired with quilting and hand embroidery techniques as well as knits. Brushed cotton fabrics were utilized throughout each look to represent and evoke the true sense of comfort that we can find within the bonds we share between one another.
