About the collection

Formblatt 151

My collection is inspired by the basic ideas of the Bauhaus style. It forms a synthesis of art and craft which is on the one hand characterized by our innovative and technological spirit of age and on the other hand it leaps back into former days.
Rectilinear shapes and strong co¬¬lour contrasts combined with a touch of the sixties fashion clash characterize my collection.
Weaving and embroidery are not longer forgotten. In conjunction with a new form of processing these traditional crafts experience a renascence.
Furthermore the Wassily chair designed by M.Breuer has a fundamental meaning in my work.
Like the chair parts of my collection are based on sort of a frame so that clothes get its form as well as its function.
