Your personal message: Every great adventure begins with a dream. From an early age I dreamed of being a designer.
To Ramil Makinano, every great adventure begins with a dream, and from an early age he dreamed of being a designer. As someone who loves to surround himself with energetic, positive, upbeat and fun people, Ramil draws his inspiration from life itself. London, with a cosmopolitan clash and mix of couture, yet steeped tradition serves as an inspirational city to him. Bright neoprenes, silk, duchess satin and cotton jersey were hand dyed and screen printed for the “Neon Space Fantasia, Graduate Collection” by Ramil Makinano. With the original prints and combination of materials, he seeks to express the joy and fun of colour and of being different in his designs.
