Angeles H. Schumann
Textile Artist Fashion
I like to see fashion from its origins, as a creative expression, unleashing emotions and ideas, experimenting with hands, fibres and colours from an artistic point of view. One of my favourite artists in the world is Elsa Schiaparelli, who used to say: “I gave pink the nerve of red and it became an unreal pink”. This is how fuchsia was born. – Angeles Hidalgo
