MISSION

 cir12
The mission is to keep on surprising or shock with my approach to fashion and by doing so, also inspire others to always celebrate creativity and freedom. With my experimental design with low culture elements mixed with high end craftsmanship with a couture touch, gives a quiet original view on fashion. I like to tell stories with my collections. I take global or social problems and I romanticize these problems, give them a layer of fantasy. To really make my stories complete I transform outfits into characters to give them a setting in the story, to give the story a more personal approach, that something that the viewer can related to.
There is no desire to mass produce, the brand has to stay exclusive and all seasons are made to last overtime like art pieces. Pieces aren’t time related and will not be given an expiration date, for instance Spring/Summer 2017. I like to call this a new form of slow fashion which would lead to a longer life for exclusive pieces and more reason to keep on wearing these pieces instead of binging affraid of it might not be the ‘IN’ thing right now. More love to the designer, the garment, the craftsmanship and the person that wears it for respecting true creativity and freedom.
As a designer my mission is to conquer the world with my designs and to share with the world my view on design. I’m dedicated and willing to work hard for what I want and master it. I want to keep on learning and improving myself as a designer and to keep on asking the best of myself to share my best with everyone.
