“There is a loss of soul in our culture,
a general emptiness around us.
People are looking for something and
I think a lot of people don’t quite know what they are looking for.
Astrology falls into that.”
Astrology is ever present in many people’s lives. It seems to be a reassuring thought
to imagine that everything’s written in the stars and we’re living our destiny, rather
than just bumping haphazardly around in space and time.
I enjoyed slipping into the roll play of a “fashion-astrologer”, using the astrological
calendar together with my own observations.
I intended to recognize the similarities people have with one another with reference to
their astrological personality traits, while still focussing on the peculiarities of the
individual, despite the star constellation on his or her date of birth.
The idea of individual physicality ties my collection together and gives it a sensuous
feel. For me, each look should be unique and focused on the atmosphere each
I wish to portray a collection that is sleek and elegant, while exuding a relaxed
playfulness full of wit and irony. The pieces should reflect a calm mood while being
comfortable and bring happiness to the wearer.
