What I’m really passionate about is to create a concept and a character. That’s how I became curious about costume design. My biggest inspiration has been coherent movie characters who have been identified with their costumes and those movies were the reason I started this job.
I’ve always been fascinated by corsets. I think they make women look elegant and feminine as well as strong and sturdy as if they were wearing an armor.
It’s one of my biggest interests but I focus on how people lived rather than historic events. I believe that learning about history sheds light on the present and it’s very important for self-improvement to ask the right questions and make the right deductions. Besides, I also find it very interesting to examine the conditions back then in detail.
With Soporose, I wanted to create a sense of aesthetics that is timeless. It became a harmony of conflicting things that inspire me. By making a contemporary interpretation of nostalgic forms, I designed my first collection that blends the glory of the past and the simplicity of the present.
Today, fashion offers a wide selection that caters to almost everyone, but I believe it still lacks individualization and originality.
For me, luxury is everything that makes me feel special.
