How are you living the quarantine: fears and dreams?

Today, April 28th is my 50th day in quarantine. Because of COVID-19, I missed an event at the Fashion Hub market where I won an award during Milan fashion week in February, my birthday and many of my friends' birthdays, like everyone I lost a lot of occasions and a lot of work, but I looked to concentrate on myself and my passion, even when my bad moods, anxiety and worries weren't any help. I spent and I am spending these days with much organization, dedicated to working, with obligations I must finish at the end of every day. Cleaning the house, creating a space as comfortable as possible to be able to create, researching and then finally designing clothes, imagining situations where these clothes can live and then creating the figure with a precise identity, with its story, that becomes also my own;
and finishing the day with video calls with people with an image related to mine in order to speak about and deepen the work I had done, to avoid closing into myself, to have an outside stimulus. My dear friend Thais Montessori Brandao, who works as a Stylist, has been precious for this part. I spent 50 days working on my next collection SS21, on every detail, seam, accessory, fabric, colour and now I am ready for the realization, I am ready to show my version of hope, a prosperous rebirth full of beauty and bright colours. Another focal point of this quarantine has been cooking with Carter in which we experimented with the fusion Italo-americano and I often dreamed of having a restaurant with him.
FEARS: that even one thing that brought me joy 2 months ago won't be possible anymore.
DREAMS: that my generation becomes the adult generation, aware and full of energy in any sector.
