During the pandemic that affected the entire world and that kept us locked in our homes for many months, our offices were also paralyzed and we had to close until further notice. But we knew that we could not stand idly by, we wanted to bring some “entertainment” to society in these difficult times.
From Onesixone we have always felt identified with art, culture, slow fashion, and that is why we take advantage of these moments to chat and have a conversation with people who inspire us, women who are references, artists who inspire and who move the same values as Onesixone.
On this occasion, we had the opportunity to talk with the illustrator Sara Sidari
