You will possibly see a correlation with manouches; the French word for bohemians and titans. My inspiration comes from ethnic cultures of course, but also from vintage. There is a correlation with "minouche", which is an (outdated) expression meaning "hands", mostly- little hands. This refers to the “petites mains” who are helpers in haute couture ateliers.
I like to blend and play with contrasts of all kinds: tailored/deconstructed, clean/frayed and dirty, bright colors/faded, peasant/sophisticated, raw fabrics/luxury fabrics. With a background in tailoring, I have an obsession with collars and details. Can you tell? ☺
I get bored very quickly, this why I mostly do “ooak” items. It’s challenging, and I have to control my fear of the blank…
