ABOUT

I'm fascinated by the meeting between the person and the garment, the creative act that occurs when you get dressed. This is the central point of my design. I avoid adding specific values in the garments such as male/female, shirt/dress, up/down. Instead I'm trying to make an exciting tool to explore fashionable silhouettes on the body.
Except for this I'm a storytelling person. I always want to create exclusive values to my design by connecting them a story you can relate to.
My favorite projects are collaborations with other people and artist, that involve the local surroundings or the consumer. This is something I'm really looking forward to develop further!
