"Solve et coagula" (lat. löse und verbinde)
"Solve et coagula" (lat. dissolve and coagulate), an alchemistic maxim, means the analysis and dissolution of a property and its subsequent putting together to give a better whole. In my viewpoint, outmoded clothing is not waste, but serviceable stuff in the wrong context. This perspective motivates me to examine discarded clothing for details which I can piece together to create new and better. Thereby I bridge the gap between classic and modern using complex asymmetrical patterns and precise selection of fabrics.
