Traffic Light Sunset

with her collection she searched for the magic in the mundane.

Growing up not knowing there is also magic in the normal, she now reflects on daily clothing and how we experience this mundane part of our lives. The very normal and routine objects that make up our daily life but hardly get the attention they deserve. ‘TRAFFIC LIGHT SUNSET’ is about standing still in this fast moving world, looking around, finding the beauty and valuing the details. By deconstructing and glorifying daily clothing she wants to create attention for the magical in the ordinary.
