Paul Castro has nearly 20 years of experience as a fashion designer in his native Ecuador, as well as Canada, the Bahamas and, for the last 10 years, Australia. His professional journey has spanned sportswear, made-to-measure, as well as womenswear.
In 2015, Paul enrolled in RMIT’s Masters of Fashion (Design) seeking to explore alternative ways of designing and constructing garments. His starting point was a range of men’s discarded, archetypal garments and, through innovative design processes, the garments were transformed into unique women’s fashion pieces. These singular garments are Paul’s response to the pervasive trends in contemporary design.
