/Atelier final garment/
The idea of focusing and the development on the natural behaviour of stones and crystals. Observing the perfect roughness of the outer shell and understanding the fragile of breaking with just on movement.
Fabric: Grey denim
/Experimenting on CLO/
A variation of my design idea developed digital with CLO3D
/Working in different scenes/
This has been a collaboration with a berlin grafitti artitst and an upcoming rapper. Combining three worlds.
/Fabric manipulation by dying, cutting and sewing/
Having deconstructed primarily for my person work this exercise gave me many new ideas how to develop my skills.
/BALENCIAGA DESIGN CONCEPT/
Behind the scenes of my three design ideas for BALENCIAGA
A concept idea I came up with for womanwear to express a confident and futuristic look.
A sleeveless hoodie with a clear statement. Equality for both genders. Giving the hood a superhero vibe to feel like everything can be changed.
A denim which is inspired by the usage of enlarged pockets to make a denim more unique and funktional. Thinking about the future and seeing how digital devices get bigger and better.
/Logo concept - BALENCIAGA/
Screenprinting my designed balenciaga logo with neon yellow colour.
My idea to combine two genders by making equal clothing. For example making only one section in a department store rather than using two split sections.
/First look of the denim for Balenciaga/
The first look of the denim makes it very underestimating. First when you wear the garment you will notice the funktionality of the big pockets.

Making it bulk - tactical - confident
