What is your specialty, what makes your work unique? Or place your artist's statement.

Over the years i have developed an interest and love for tailoring. My work is about craft and it's history. I like to work on the small details, things that are invisible at first glance, like the way the inside of a welt pocket is stitched. With references of past silhouettes and old crafts, i create new items to tell a story. A story often about acceptance and equality. The references i use are known items with a large history and stereotypes. By keeping the craft but breaking the stereotype, i bring a modern image and write a new story with an old tale.

What are your ambitions? What do you want to be in five years?

My ambition is to keep learning more about tailoring and other crafts, like knitwear or working with leather. I have still so much to learn, and i'm so eager to learn it. In five years i would like to go abroad and work for a brand, maybe as a studio manager, and designing in a team. Being surrounded by patterns, fabric and sewing machines. For now i will continue to work freelance, continue my own work and collection, and work in collaboration with artists.

What is the most important thing you have learned during your studies?

I learned that working together can be valuable. I learned that i'm very stubborn and always will be. That i can trust myself and do whatever i want to. That things will never turn out exactly how you want them to. And that i should always listen to myself.
