My journey for the creation of my collection, as dramatic as it may sound, started with failure. The final silhouettes took more than just brain storming, research and time, most of all I had to make them “less complicated”. The term Autopsy gives away a lot what my collection is centered around, the inspiration focuses on encapsulating and storing what’s deceased. My idea behind the term and what I represent is beyond just cutting open the human body to find what happened but it also is a metaphor, referring to the autopsy of fashion and what is wrong in the world of fashion. The inspiration came from artist Olivier de Sagazan, who performs visually stimulating workshops on the dark side of death and from designers like Rick Owens, Gareth Pugh, Barbara Gongini. One key factor across my collection remains the usage of plastic and making outfits to show “bodies wrapped in plastic”. My final outfits are bodysuits with all over prints and poncho-style plastics covering on top.
