This series is a painting floating around the body.
It starts with the portraits I created for random people, usually girls,
I encountered in my life.
As a designer I have an instinctive way of working:
I perceive, react and compose the work spontaneously with my own design language.
Fluidity is a main subject of my work. It is understood as being dynamic and natural.
The unconventional structure, fluid brush, hand dyeing, and embroidery,
flow like rivers around the wearer.
It is a composition of material and textile;
a balance between the dynamic and the structured,
a mixture of rawness and fineness,
in a narrative context,
reaching a subtle equilibrium in design.
