Hernan Cárcamo studied Fashion Design and in 2011 created Matias Hernan. He presented his first collection with Collective Raiz Diseño, and in 2013 he won Project Runway Latin America. His proposals are inspired by themes of futurism, femininity, abstract codes, and iconic forms and shapes, which all create a rather modern whole. He specialised in the development of experimental textiles based on the fusion of elasticised fabrics and materials, and technologies associated with garment construction, process and techniques, including laser cutting and printing. Matias aims to delve deeper and develop in multidisciplinary arts practice, including music, dance and performance, so that he can turn the brand into an integral product that responds to current contemporary market needs and trends.
