on contrasting structures or surfaces and the difference between what is
perceived and what is the real characteristic of clothes were always
interesting to me.
Broken Butterfly is another example of my explorations within the subject.
The collection was inspired by Anne Ten Donkelaar’s
artworks. The Dutch artist did an amazing work trying to ‘repair’ dead
butterflies—filling their damaged structure with materials such as cord,
threads, little parts taken from old maps, twigs.
While looking at these complex yet subtle
constructions one realizes of how elaborate creature the butterfly is—the creature
making an impression of being ephemeral and delicate represents high level of
engineering at the same time.
This point is the most interesting for me as a
starting point for the collection—relation between advanced construction and
delicacy, fragility. Clothes of specific “architectural” shape can easily be
distorted and change its shape despite the fact of how stiff and rigid they
Memory-shape fabrics as well as fabrics that can
easily be modified and manipulated or transformed help in reaching desired
results, being a kind of counterpoint
to the fabrics of more solid and less ‘unstable’
