City of Oakland - Graffiti Love




I was raised in the City of Oakland. I grew up around people from different cultures and backgrounds. Since childhood, I have been surrounded by street culture. I took inspiration from different sites in Oakland for Delivery I. For example, I took pictures at Lake Merritt, the train tracks and Fruitvale Bart station. These places gave me ideas for the silhouettes and fabric textures. This collection was designed for Balenciaga. My approach for the streetwear category was full, baggy and used a masculine silhouette.

I went around the city to take pictures of the graffiti as well, that's where I got my color palettes for both deliveries.
