Last summer I had the joy to see the
my handmade silkcloths in a fashionshow in the Old City of Stockholm, together with my artworks. A fashionshow organized by Sari Lindroos and Oliver Miilus.
Our theme was "PRESENCE"...feeling, beeing, mindfullness. All the girls where barefeeted and we used the music of Bonobo... It was fantastic!
Oliver aslo created this ARTVIDEO expressing the poetry, the transparency and the fluidity he feel in the cloths.
Two years ago I started to create dresses that I call my "wearable art". I buy the silk from a weaver outside Lyon. I then handdye it with Indigo, weide or diffrent plantdyes. Often I use eco dying the fascinating India Flint technique. As last step I add my printed images - faces, leafs, texts etc.
All the cloths are manufactured by my couturier Corinne Vincent in Toulouse.
I love the transparency and the softness of the fabric! To wear an artwork makes it anymore special...as becomes the person wearing it.
PERSONAL ORDER: please contact me if you would like a dress or skirt in another size. Don't forget though that the colors will all be unique...
and the prints of the leaves will all be different.
Thats the charm!
