“The Fragile formation”
”I am fascinated to create fluid sculptures. My collection “The Fragile Formation” is inspired by the sensual shapes of the natural world and is based on the construction principles that are also to find in the nature. In terms of design, the shoes for this collection are also inspired by the fluid swirling of the organic nature; female feet is wrapped. The designs are a study in techniques and shapes, in which craftsmanship plays an important role. In spite of the complex and technical challenges involved in their designs, my work exudes an exacting simplicity; upholding a balance between experimental and wearable design; between dream and reality. For me, the allure of a design resides in its purity. My garments appear simple at first glance but are extremely refined, delicate and intimate sculptural forms. All pieces in my collection are handcrafted and molded from one single length of fabric. I use natural materials such as silk, cotton, silk jersey, cashmere, organdy. Most fabrics are then hand-dyed with organic pigments or natural dyes like tea, coffee and herbs. I use lightweight materials that can easy maintain their shape. In addition, I use single- color fabric so that the attention goes to the construction”.
