WORDS BY THE AUTHOR / The BOŽENA collection deals with inheritance. I reconstruct the estate of my grandmother Božena based on the stories about dresses she wore and which do not exist anymore. I connect grandma´s descriptions to the expression in my clothing style and this way, I create an inheritance for future generations. The models are also based on characteristic features of my grandmother. The collection is influenced by an ethical and sustainable message and it deals with the issue of decomposability. I research differences between things with and without an emotional bond. I think about the conservation of the clothes and I subsequently choose the right materials for that.
