In her latest collection When She Left the Room, the Spirits Went With Her, fashion designer Tara Mabiala brings together various sources of inspiration, including those of 70s Blaxploitation films and Westerns. The two genres might seem far apart but they meet on the importance of the characters’ clothing: it is symbolic of their roles, asserts their statuses and anchors the action.


Through a projection and a look book, this project offers an immersion in the universe of the collection whose images are integrated with those of emblematic movies of these two film genres.


Mysterious, confident and volatile, “she” travels between these worlds, creates her own, and takes you there.
