Tell us more about your collection!

I think a collection’s concept should be something organic. This year, I didn’t feel like doing a lot of research on historical costumes or heavy subjects that don’t feel modern to me. I’m from a rather conservative family and my mother was always asking me why I got into art, since “we’ve never had artists in our family”. So I went through my relatives’ archives to see what was there and decided that I would show her that we do have artists in our family. I looked at all these beautiful embroideries my grandma made by hand seventy years ago. They are still modern. A funny detail is that she made every design three times -for her two daughters and herself- and at first glance they all look the same, but in fact they are slightly different. To be honest, some of these visuals are a bit weird which makes them even more amazing. To know that they all came from my grandma’s imagination blows me away.
