Flora Miranda is an Austrian fashion designer, based in Antwerp/Belgium. Throughout her work, the main focus is on the human being, one’s body, senses, and perception. Flora explores physical border experiences that take place in virtual or actual reality. Flora spent her formative years growing up in the circle of a family of artists and musicians where she developed her skills as a painter.
After finishing her master's degree at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, she executed projects for Iris Van Herpen. In that sense, her drive to function as an inspirer and a visionary is challenging the obsolete idea of haute couture. Flora seeks to create dreams and desires, in her view, fashion as a form of escapism plays an important role in one’s life. To her, fashion does not only describe garments, it involves a whole aesthetic world that we are surrounding ourselves with, and that we believe in.
