Patricia Chamadoira Agudo was born in Barcelona in 1993, but moved to Galicia with her family in 1999 - where they settled; resulting in her growing up there. Her family were dedicated to fashion throughout her childhood; resulting in her formulating an acute understanding, passion and dedication to the world of fashion from an early age. After completing her University education in A Coruña; in English Language and Literature, she continued her studies and branched out into Cutting and Dressmaking. This she did for two years, while she simultaneously paralleled her newly acquired trade with her work, resulting in her making her own garments. That is where she took it upon herself to make the final leap of faith; taking the definitive step into textile design.
In 2018, she began a Master’s in Design and Creative Direction of Fashion at ESDEMGA, in the city of Pontevedra, where she currently resides, carrying out at the end of the first year an internship in the Zara Baby department, of the INDITEX group. In her last year, and as a result of her interest in ancient fabrics, she finished the master's degree with the Solstice collection; which groups and represents her main motivations as a Nobel designer.
Her first collection, Solsticio, which belongs to Temporal brand, tries to integrate a series of concerns that vibrate within the different dimensions of the world of fashion’s realm. On the one hand, as it’s name indicates, the collection refers to pagan rituals, on the other hand, it refers to the clothing of the smaller communities that still exist today; that venerate fertility and harvest cycles ... Many products of popular contemporary culture such as the film Midsommar or the literary work The ritual have focused on these groups and have made them the object of study. Linking with these communities, there is an intention to reveal the psychological role of clothing in religious schisms, if there is a causal relationship between clothing and the gregarious nature of the members of the cults and in what sense this relationship flows.
The creative process in these communities is nourished by giving a second life to the materials that are at their disposal. This same process is the one that has been followed in Patricia's collection, selecting the raw material in textile and antique markets. This way of proceeding makes each piece in the collection feel genuine, promoting ideas such as the particular background history, or multiple indeed, of each garment since there is a very meticulous patchwork behind it each and every piece.
