The Ria Keburia 'Revival' collection marries its religious and futuristic themes together to create a new breed of modern womenswear. Inspired by society's obsession with materialism and commercialization, the designer explores the decline of spirituality and rise of atheism during the twenty-first century.

Playing with sculptural silhouettes, the designer defines bold new shapes with the help of traditional origami construction techniques. Displayed in a bold palette of black and yellow tones, this architectural womenswear line references a monastic aesthetic often associated with monks and nuns of various religious sects.

In addition to its spiritual connotations, the Ria Keburia 'Revival' collection also references sci-fi imagery as it channels a loose representation of Star Wars' iconic Queen Amidala character.
