Artist's Statement
Inspired by Margaret Mee's and Carl Friedrich von Martius' respective journeys to the Amazon Rainforest in Brazil, Ana Jablinski imagined discovering an old, abandoned greenhouse hidden in the middle of the rainforest today. This fantasy awoke Ana's nostalgia for her home country's diverse flora and unique architecture. Terra Incognita is a collection that highlights Brazilian craftsmanship and sustainability in fashion through classic and contemporary silhouettes.
Ana Jablinski was born and raised in Curitiba, Brazil. After obtaining her bachelor's degree in fashion design and working for small Brazilian brands locally, she relocated to San Francisco as a designer for the bridal startup, Anomalie. Working closely with lace reinvigorated Ana's love for an art form she grew up appreciating on childhood trips to Santa Catarina, watching local women knit a distinct form of lace entirely by hand. In New York, Ana has worked for threeASFOUR and Proenza Schouler and earned her Master of Fine Arts in fashion design at the Fashion Institute of Technology.
