Flora’s work is strongly picked up by the art world, leading to several exhibition participations at spaces as Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg, Liu Haisu Museum Shanghai, Haus Der Kulturen Der Welt Berlin and Somersethouse London. For her creations she received prices including the Rado Starprize Austria, Outstanding Artist Award for Experimental Fashion Design by BKA, Mittelmoda award for Technology and she was a finalist at International Talent Support.

Flora Miranda Sping/Summer 2019 ‘Deep Web’ collection is the designer’s visualization of her very own approach to the idea of ‘Machine Learning’ and is dedicated to explaining the process of teaching a machine what clothing is and how it is produced.

Inspired by American transgender artist Amanda Lepore’s image, each design of the collection plays with feminine body shape. The dresses generically reproduce the most stereotypical, current image of ‘femininity’, playing upon the strict categorisation a computer implies, and the way computers deal with a fine variety of genders. With Lepore’s unique shape, Flora gives the computer a model to learn with, while teaching it how clothing works.

Flora Miranda has teamed up with the Internet artist Signe Pierce who will perform in front of an informative keynote presentation composed by the Swiss artist Simone C. Niquille.
