A young Danish man is making a stand against something that he feels strongly about – the “corruption” of Bogota’s Transmilenio bus system. And how better to make the point than through the medium of fashion?
Artist and designer Gabriel Zully has created a line of garments that represent the harsh injustices occurring aboard the Colombian capital’s widely revered public transport system.
“There’s insecurity inside [the Transmilenio],” lamented the talented young revolutionary, “with people pushing and no consideration for old people, pregnant people…”
The designer also spoke against the price of buses, “this company is corrupt – having to pay 83 cents for a ride…”
After presenting the clothes in a stylish runway show as part of Bogota’s fashion week Gabriel Zully told Caracol television that he hopes his one-man-campaign will have national repercussions.
“I want people to realize that it’s not actually the cool thing that everyone thinks it is.”
