While applying for a fine arts degree in Italy, Cassandra discovered the concept of Global Nomadism. Cassandra began to empathise with the Global Nomad, who’s transient lifestyle sees them drift from one place to another, without a permanent job or abode. Constant change is their only constant.
Cassandra communicates the concept of temporary living through multi-functional garments, including a jacket that transforms into a backpack, another jacket that converts to a sleeping-bag, one that becomes a tent, and pants that transform into a backpack.
gLOBAL is practical for the perpetual traveller, while innovative and highly fashionable.
