The succinct feeling of crisp light, savageness, and sensitivity of masked ceremony in African image caught me. I wanted to show the sense of presence and absence of how one space can intrude into another. I created embossed textures made with invisible threads. This starting point led me to sensual yet raw and unrefined fabrics. By creating all patterns from scratch, and altering the sketch as I go, or simply draping without referencing garments until after the first draft toile, no basic block was used. It was pure creation with fabric. Although it was experimental, I try to create pieces that would feel comfortable when someone is actually wearing them, beautiful as separate pieces, and the headpieces show the worship of the spirit of isolation.
