In Paris I discovered the wonderful work of Charles Fréger.
Now there is not only an exhibition of his ‘Wildermann’ work in Vitry sur Seine (not so far from Paris) but also in the photomuseum in Antwerp. This is defenitely an exhibition to visit !

Etnic costumes has always been an important inspiration when I design textiles. And so the pictures of Charles Fréger are like a present to me.

At the moment I’m busy with creating an outfit for a fashion project, called Fashion Clash. It maybe can sound strange, but I never have made clothes in my life. But that’s just what they want for the project, ‘the clash project’. They ask non-fashion-designers to create an outfit. It has to be experimental, and with the use of our own materials and craft. I descided to make an outfit that is like a contemporary etnic costume. With a bunch of colors and volume, and will only use fabrics that I made myself. Already a week long I’m working on 1 little piece of the outfit. It’s a lot of work, but I think it will be beautiful. Next week it supposed to be finish, this is going to be stressy !

This work makes me want to design new carpets. That will be my next project.
