Manifesto

It is extremly important to me in my collections, that the wearer is entirely in control. She is strong, independent and rebellious. She does not want to satisfy a patriarchal mainstream sexiness, but generates a new, unique sensuality, which represents her as powerful and fearless.
Japanese cuts and philosophies inspire me and my collections since I started my fashion education. I always draft my collections in an exchange with the immediate skin and the symbiosis between body and fashion. This aspects also brought me to the "selfmade-made-to-measure". Furthermore I also create my own motifs and prints that serve as a communicative symbol/sign.
