For her Spring 2012 collection, Jessica Trosman married the freedom of this homeless artist with the sci-fi imagery of local ice-cream production. Leather trousers and long skirts wave like icy steel sheets, while jackets hang effortlessly from shoulders and backs as if they had had landed on the models after a creamy storm. Everything in this collection feels watery, crystal-like. Trosman seems to be working with elements she has found in a glacier. This is an urban glacier nonetheless, and the snow and the ice are stained and polluted with the noises and the detritus of industrial.

Admirer of National Geographic magazine and nostalgic for legendary designers like Charles Eames, Frank Lloyd Wright, Le Corbusier and Van de Rohe, Trosman takes distance from the classic methodology of a fashion designer. She walks through the silhouette taking scientific decisions and developing each piece like an architectural process where parts are apparently not sewn but become ensemble. While doing so she reveals shapes that flow along the body as if they were predestined.
Jessica Trosman is increasingly becoming a well known new face in the fashion world while she still remains based in Buenos Aires, the city which supplies her with endless inspiration. Since her first collection in 2002, Trosman enjoys a consistent growth that have placed the label in many prestigious stores from Europe, Asia, U.S and Middle East. Furthermore she has been recognized by two of the most renown book publishers, when being included in their latest compendiums of fashion design (Fashion Now 2 by Taschen, Sample by Phaidon).
