About:

I love to be creative and I love using my imagination to build up projects in my head, which I can later turn into reality. For me, no challenge is too big and detailing is a key for making my work unique. And there is always a way, somewhere, somehow. Goals are there to be achieved, challenges to be overcome and deadlines to be filled out, even up to the last second.Designing for me is combined with hard work, confidence as well as joy and passion, which makes it so interesting to explore.

This work makes clear that nature can not only be inspiring in terms of aesthetically beautiful applications, colours and shapes, but also that what is hidden – such as psychological similarities between humans and animals – can have a positive influence on the transformation of the fashion industry. Clothing offers the possibility of social exchange. How it is perceived happens unconsciously and uncontrollably through the always active senses. Every person freely decides how much of the inner self is revealed by the choice of clothing. In doing so, everyone is controlled by two needs: the need to stand out and the need to fit in. These needs are also found in nature under the terms mimicry and mimesis. While in the animal world they can be called nature‘s mime, clothing is man‘s mime. Mimicry and mimesis have the prerequisite of being seen and from this the shape is determined. The gaze alone plays a decisive role, because only when one sees oneself with the eye of the other person can one be prepared to deceive him. In this context, the question must be asked how mimicry and mimesis affect self-perception and what effect they have on humans.
