Ateliê Vivo founded in 2015, is a transdisciplinary artistic space for the independent and autonomous study of fashion. The collective, composed of Ana Carolina Cherubini, Andrea Guerra Arradi, Flavia Lobo de Felicio and Gabriela Cherubini, works from São Paulo and throughout Brazil since 2015. Ateliê Vivo operates through the Pattern Library, The School and the Laboratory of Textile Artistic Practices and rethinks formal education by fostering thinking-by-doing, questioning the distance between theory and practice.
Biblioteca de Modelagem is a collage panel based on the clothing patterns from the Ateliê’s Pattern Library collection. Ateliê Vivo has gathered patterns from different Brazilian fashion designers and magazines since 2015 as a way to experiment, practice and evolve textile knowledge, reflecting on autonomy through the construction of clothing and sewing practices.
