Today, everyone is an individual who is detached from the unshakable ties of the past and determines his own life. We can make our own choices and decide for ourselves how to fill our life with happiness and truth. It’s this behavior of people searching for truth and happiness that fascinates me.
Who is your favorite fashion designer or artist? Why? I do not necessarily have one favorite artist or fashion designer. I look for inspiration to so many artists in different disciplines. It can be a movie director, a fashion designer or a music band as well as inspiring people in my personal life.
Some names which are in my top list at the moment are: video artist Shana Moulton, musical groups Neon Indian and Toro y Moi, medieval painter Hieronymus Bosch and movie director Alejandro Jodorowsky.
What can you bring to FASHIONCLASH Maastricht 2011? I’ll show my new collection: a search of happiness #2. This collection was inspired by : a quote by a French philosopher Jean Baudrillard: "God exists but I don't believe in him”, various religions and their rituals and Zardoz and Holy Mountain – two philosophical/ sci-fi movies from 70s.
During FASHIONCLASH Maastricht 2011 I’ll show a collection that can be used as ritual garments for my own made up religion. I also hope to translate this into a short film soon after the event.
How did your experience with fashion started? When did you decide to be a fashion designer?When I was young, every week I wanted to become someone else, but I was always very creative. At times I was drawing all kinds of strange garments, like for example Egyptian space-outfits or my own wedding dress.
In the future, I hope to do many projects in collaboration with various artists in different disciplines. By doing so, I would like to explore my inspiration and concept from multiple perspectives.
Furthermore, one of my dreams is to design the costumes for a big or low budget Science Fiction film.
