Mateo Velasquez is a recent graduate from Central Saint Martins. His new collection is a project to empower LGBTQI+ communities and a way to support non-conforming gender roles.

“A way to allow our bodies to confront and disrupt the landscape to reclaim our visibility. A safe space and an opportunity to showcase an unapologetic self-belief, to outrule the norms and to disrupt in order to change the world.”
