Looking at this skirt, rich in volume and so strong in its cut that deformes even a strict man shirt,  I asked myself, what is about asymmetry and deconstruction  that attractes me so much.  Like in architecture,  abandoned and decaying houses made out of wood and stone always catch my eye. Same in fashion. when I see clothes that are asymmetric, unfinished and layered, I stare at them and search where is the begining and the end of the fabric and how it is all put together. Where does the fabric go, what is underneath. And although it may seem unfinished and oversized and sometimes looks like a homeless person cloth, it is rich because of its story and because all of the fabric that is used to make a such a peace. It must be the mistery of each individual decontructive garment that makes it so atractive.

Today clothing doesn't carry its significance only as protection from
external elements, it's not only reflecting social changes or
differences between social statuses. It is something that overcame
its initial function and rose as pure aesthetic fact.

Through my clothing sometimes I'm expressing the need to socialize and
sometimes I want to isolate myself from society, wanting the others to
understand me in both cases. Strong nonverbal aspect of communication
that clothing holds made me think what kind of message my dressing
sends out to world, what am I saying about myself.  It is a medium
through which I speak about my daily activities, but most importantly
my moods and emotions. And of course there is always a question will
the others react to it and how will they react. Is it possible at all
that they perceive me through clothes exactly the way I want them to?
