See Things Differently
Garments are both material and message. They cover us up – and reveal us – physically and emotionally. They hold potential to alter how we feel and how we see things, which in turn, change the things we see.
"I went to Berlin and I walked around in this [outfit]… for two days, three days… and I was a little surprised because I thought in the evening so many people have smiled to me today! Could it be because I’m in red? And I met a Danish friend of a friend and she said, “Oh I have seen you several times today” and actually we had been going around the same art pieces and so.
I have just made [altered] these trousers… they were very wide and long and straight and the dress was a maxi bought in Rome in 2002 which I cut it a little and then I cut it more and made the pockets. And I think it’s interesting these two red colours, how they found each other, the meeting of many years between."
