Isabelle Mesquita

Isabelle Mesquita was born on June 9, 1988, in Rio de Janeiro / BR.

A contemporary artist who uses art as an intervention in the waste of clothing giving a extension to the product life after consumption. The use of streetart, graffiti, and human figures in black and white are part of the artist’s identity.

In 2012, Isabelle began her manual production of handbags, shoes and clothing to encourage fashion and design with a focus on socio-environmental responsibility and sustainable development.

The artistic design applied on T-shirts, bags and shoes is the key to the emotional design and history of the object after its consumption which minimizes the rapid and unconscious disposal. Artistic techniques in finished clothing were idealized at her Art Studio in the city of Auckland / New Zealand in 2014.

Bachelor of Fashion Design from Veiga de Almeida University / BR; specialist in Fabrics from Auckland University of Technology / NZ; Master in Fashion and Luxury Management from the Paris School of Business and Master in International Development Management from the Ecole Supérieure de Gestion et Commerce International, in France.

With published and awarded design projects in Brazil, Argentina, New Zealand, France and Spain, Isabelle has a broad academic research curriculum and creative portfolio in fashion and sustainable design connected to the contemporary art.
