About Nanette

Nanette Gabriele Trujillo is a Fashion Design graduate from Parsons School of Design class of 2021 in New York City. Since the age of sixteen, Nanette has been constructing garments and developing her creative approach to design.

Her thesis Our Spatial Imprint is a collection rooted in the study of the connection between our inner emotional being and interior space. She developed a fascination with how private spaces influence our mood, sleep, and energy. In recent years she began to struggle with chronic insomnia which inspired her to research approaches to achieve spatial balance and calmness within her own home.

Nanette studied the practice of Feng Shui and utilized it to gain stability over stress.

After meeting with a Feng Shui professional, she applied the rules to every aspect of life. Inspired by artist Louise Bourgeois’s insomnia drawings, Nanette created a series of illustrations done before bedtime as a form of meditation that later turned into print designs.

Even in their psychedelic nature, the prints release a sense of peace through various color tonalities and compositions. Advocating sustainability in her pieces, the goal was to create accessories made of repurposed materials found in interior spaces such as chandelier crystals, metal door knobs, and rattan wood.

Her work is extremely relevant to our current environment and she has found great relief in her personal exploration. She hopes to inspire others to achieve their own Spatial Imprint.
