For the RISQ, her title for her collection is entitled Chimerical, which means wildly fanciful imagination. When she showed us her mood board, it was composed of pictures of the works of art of Valentina Ramos (Line Art). She also showed us pictures of shadows that showed a lot of details. She said that she will use the colors Burnt coral, Klein Blue, Lotus, Endive, and Sky for her collection. It was the first time I actually heard of these colors.
