Aplomb means to have great faith in oneself or one’s abilities, creating a state of mind or manner marked by easy coolness. I designed this collection with people in mind that embody the word, specifically people that grew up feeling marginalized in their identities yet empowered in these differences, their identities and their communities. I took inspiration from my own life including my friends, dance parties, and raves.
