Need to play

The start of something new is not accomplished by the mind, but by acts of playful intuition.


I see fashion as a way of looking at and responding to society. My collages of expressive colors, shapes, prints and textiles display a world of endless possibilities and joyful interactions. ‘Need to play’ is an antidote to the daily pressures and stress, both in society as well as in design methods. By thinking, manipulating and adapting rules I create my own playground. A playground that is joyful and optimistic with a playful attitude where positivity and unexpected interactions are the main drivers.
