Marie Claire magazine featured her Bachelor’s diploma work and now also her Master's degree collection. She exhibited in Venice, Pécs, her Bauhaus-inspired works have been featured in several venues at the National Gallery and LUMU. Her clothing has also been featured on the METU LOOK fashion edition catwalk and she is one of Forbes's 30/30s.
We are proud that magazines regularly feature Lúcia's work, so we asked her a few questions about it.
Articles already featured many of your work and fashion items. How did it feel to see your most recent master's thesis in a print magazine?
I was so fortunate that my Bachelor's thesis piece was also published in Marie Claire two years ago! The article now was the icing on the cake. The cover page features my Windsor Red knit sweater. And who wears it is none other than Laura Döbrösi's, who is a very talented and kind person, and I've had the chance to meet her in person.
What was most important to you in this collection? You haven’t used knitwear in your previous works, why was it different this time?
One of the significant novelties for me of the master's degree was that we could learn machine knitting. I admit I waited for this in my entire undergraduate. At that time, I could only work from ready-made knitwear, which didn't give me so much freedom in design. I love to knit by hand, and it was stimulating to get that new knowledge. I didn't want to miss it from my diploma collection either, and even made two spectacular sweaters. It was essential in my collection to step out of my comfort zone and create something spectacular worthy of a master's degree. My topic was the legacy of the British royal family, and my main idea was tradition and preservation of values. Not influenced by trends and also timeless, like the royal family, I was thinking of a collection that I made unique with exciting textile selection.
What are you working on currently?
I am currently doing a lot of illustrator work and once again, I got the opportunity to work with my illuxtrat brand to attend the November Maire Claire Fashion Days. So, I'm planning another collection!
