Ecological Dresses

Recycling is my philosophy. It’s exciting and fascinating to recover scrap, something thrown away why no more able to satisfy people’s needs, and to try to transform it into something precious, to give it a second life, a second chance.

Waste and left overs is what I work with. When I get in touch with it, I find its multi-faceted, I realize how it is transformable, I understand what it can offer me and then I start my experimentation. I don’t know where I’ll go, where I’ll arrive…it’s a continuous experience: cut, melt, glue, wedge, widen, squeeze, join.

In this way I give life to a weave, a texture, and then I shape it: my weaves shaped, shape and will shape dresses.
