Chinese mother and a Tunisian father, an American citizenship and a young nomad life, spent between California, the Mediterranean Sea, sub-Saharan Africa and the far East. That’s the cultural luggage that Sana Aloui brings along on her return back to America to study at the Chicago School of the Art Institute. Disillusioned from what she has considered “the perfect American Dream”, the perfect melting-pot, she decided to investigate on her origins and on the concrete meaning of being an American. Her granny becomes an unusual muse; she serves as inspiration for a fashion collection that sees in knitwear the primary way to enlighten an intuitive process of creation.
