,,My work is always very personal to me… The starting point for my work is always the human body… Inﬂuenced by everything that surrounds us, be it art, literature or music etc… I try to include these inspirations in my work. For me, designing a collection means creating a modern, comprehendible and wearable (point of view) piece of fashion… The handicraft process and handmade feeling are very signiﬁcant and always take a pole position in my work..“
