DECOLONIZE AESTHETICS | MEET THE GAZE | ARCHIVAL MYTHOLOGY
Azura Lovisa is a Swedish–Malaysian creator based between London and Miami. She graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2016 with a BA in Womenswear, and earned experience at Balenciaga and Peter Pilotto before launching her own label.
Azura's research and design work is informed by an interest in archives, folklore and mythology, and historical counternarratives. Azura explores points of convergence between postcolonial cultures and the West, creating a wardrobe for hybrid identities born out of intercultural exchange, displacement, and globalization. Azura combines a distinct Southeast Asian aesthetic with a Scandinavian eye for design, rethinking contemporary fashion from a critical postcolonial perspective.
