THE KINTSUGI PROJECT
The philosophy of the Japanese Kintsugi manifests itself in the whole of my collection. Kintsugi does not emphasize the flawless, but focuses on the beauty of the imperfect. Broken ceramic is reassembled and broken edges are highlighted. The unique break lines are not hidden, but rather emphasized. My fashion also relies on original cuts, high-quality workmanship and precious materials such as pure silk and cashmere.
CONCEPT AND PROCESS
Deconstruction and asymmetry are the main aspects in my collection design. As with Kintsugi, the special attraction is not the order and symmetry of objects. In contrast to the classic, two-dimensional pattern, I create my models using three-dimensional draping on the Kondo bust, which meets the highest anatomical requirements. This method is an innovative basis for model development and form research and is characterized as a free, experimental draping technique. The art, the quality standards and the craft My work "BROKEN" not only examines Kintsugi on a design and craft level, but also interprets Kintsugi's message artistically and contemplatively. Tradition and modernity are like fragments. The art is to bring the elements together. It is about combining old and new and creating a future-oriented balance. For example, I experimented with traditional horsehair and modern glue inlays. I used techniques such as pricking in new variations for the shaping and strengthening of cashmere fabrics. The asymmetrical cocktail dress with a half-length cape is made of pure cashmere. The side train is made of flowing silk georgette. The hem lines run contrary and create visual tension when viewing. The body is shaped by laying front darts and side seams in oblique dividing seams. The handmade embroidery with Japanese pearls is inspired by the fragments of a porcelain plate. Overall, the dress creates an interesting field of tension between the half-exposed shoulder and back area and the asymmetrical cape, which is only partially covered and revealed.
MY PERSONAL STATEMENT ABOUT THE COLLECTION
Innovation and progress are decisive for our time. It is important to face the future. We cannot be rigidly attached to the past, but we should deal with history and origin. What is more, you not only have to preserve the tradition, you have to carry it into the future. Innovation is like a new language. We have to translate our tradition into a new generation.
