Abstract [en]

Orange, turqoise, apricot, brown, dirt, soil, water, sky and sulfur were my first bricks while building this collection. I found them in the pictures I took in Yellowstone, in the summer of 2010. While being in Yellowstone I thought about the artist Georgia O´Keffee, an artist I’ve long liked. The landscape of Yellowstone reminded me about her landscape paintings so I researched her life and work. She was a genuine feminist without saying it, she just lived like she was equal to other women and men. This led me to a book about forgotten goddesses where I found references to drapings that I’ve developed and interspersed with flat pattern cutting. One of my key objectives, in this project and other projects, has been to push the limits of menswear towards feminine elements. I believe that there’s a certain reason why a woman can wear a suit without anyone looking twice but it’s very striking if a man wears a dress. In this collection I’ve looked into various reasons for this and I aim to let men dress the same way as women do as well as the other way around.
