„Living rooms“ is an ecological collection ranged in the highFashion/ designer section. My concept is the artistic definition of living space. I tried to create visual living spaces between humans and animals. Forms of animal habitats like nests, caves, combs and nets, scallops, snail-shells and corals have been role models in the search for new silhouettes that go beyond natural body forms. Another inspiration have been Land-art, Nature-art and Ecological art, emphasising the fragility of nature. My main focus has been on the selection of the chosen fabric. I have used exclusively ecologically grown material like bamboo, organic cotton and new wool from biologically controlled husbandry. I have dyed some of the fabric, using oeko-tex certified colours. The wool is hand-dyed,the buttons are made of stone-nutshell and wood. Working with organic materials has been a unique and very interesting experience.
