I am noticing that I am becoming more and more bored with everyday pieces of clothing. For almost two months I leave the stores empty-handed. Currently I am in the mood to put on some kind of installation. Because of that I got the idea to try my skills and imagination. Primarily I was interested in how my pieces can move away from the standard everyday look. I must mention that I do not have any skills in tailoring and sewing. I even cannot draw what I envisioned. Usually I have to realize a plan quickly so I would not forget a single detail.
The basic idea was to show a sort of rebirth, like a transformation from a dark robust cocoon into a certain amount of softness and light. I used an imitation leather skirt as a sleeve and armor. I wanted to get the volume and drapery from all sorts of materials. I do not know if I succeeded but I like it.
