"I dress for the image. Not for myself, not for the public, not for fashion, not for men...I am at heart a gentleman." Marlene Dietrich
Nobody connects Nostalgia and modernity as stylish as Marlene Dietrich. Her glamour was over the top, surreal, dangerous, androgynous and unforgettable. Inaccessible, mysterious, fascinating and rare beauty. A glamourous femme fatale but at heart a gentleman. Distinctive but still extremely feminine, did she always go her own way. Thats how she become a fashion icon.
"If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun."
Fashion inspired by BDSM is incredibly provocative and often forthright in its sexuality and is hardly ever worn with other people's viewing pleasure in mind. I incorporate elements of the fetish subculture into my creations; directly create clothes based on elements that are still not accepted by the mainstream and try to make the BDSM wear, which is not practical enough for daily wear, wearable. It was a difficult process to get the clothes where they are in regards to wearability but at the end I think it is a successful result.
