After following the pre-course at the art Academy ArtEZ, I started studying Fashion & Design. Here I found out that I want to focus on textiles & prints in my work. I did an internship at Mary Katrantzou to gain more experience in this area. In June 2018 I graduated with my menswear collection ‘Out of the Grey’. ‘Out of the Grey – part II’ is the sequel of my graduation collection from ArtEZ. My collection originated from gathered pictures from my own photography.
These pictures show walls displaying damaged posters, that reveal layer after layer. For me this layering tells a story, which was the starting point of my collection. In my eyes, the posters could be seen as a lifesized collage. I used this collage technique to create my silhouettes. I cut up my patterns to pieces and put them back together again creating a garment consisting of different fabrics. The same technique can be seen in my print design.
