What makes a piece of clothing become a cherished treasure?
This is a collection about the love for clothes. It tells the stories of the relationships a group of special women I grew up with have with their favourite pieces – pieces that they kept and cherished over years. The collection aspires to remind us of how our relationship with our clothes could or should be. Each item embodies a different set of values, a different kind of relationship that makes it so precious to their owner. I work with handcraftsmanship, natural dyes, waste and leftover materials. I’m creating soft, delicate almost fragile textiles that require to be looked after and taken care of, using deliberately slow labour-intensive couture-like techniques to underline and demonstrate their value and beauty for everyone to see and appreciate.
