Sustainable fashion is wat I’m passionate about for around 10 years. Because of that I started to learn how to sew as a hobby last year. This year, as I had some time off work, I wanted to expend my practice with an emphasis on the creative process.
At first, it was difficult to be relax and to drop my expectations and perfectionism. Finding my own style and expressing my voice through clothing was definitely a journey. The group dynamic and the help and advice from Elrike and Leonie definitely encouraged me to experiment and let go.
I am now very proud of what I created and I’m especially proud of my drawings. I realized that enjoying yourself is sometimes more important that achieving tangible creation. My creative process is an invitation for you to surrender and trust your own path.
With love, Alexia
