Bachelor Thesis / DIE WELT STEHT AUF DEM KOPF
[transl.: The World is standing on the head (literally) / The World is upside down.]
The underlying thought for my bachelor collection was to play a part in rectifying our failure, as a society, in managing the natural resources that we are endowed with.
In the race to achieve our economic goals, the society has turned a blind eye to its own health, environment and the sustainability of the very planet it exists on. This is what the German expression for “standing on the head” implies i.e. something is wrong, upside down or precisely the opposite of what it should have been. Like a perspective that is turned upside down and meant to be the other way around.
This is – in my own way of seeing it – the world being up side down.
To coexist with the nature, we need to consume consciously and focus on using organic materials which can be replenished by our environment. In my collection, I have paid special attention to this underlying principle by using materials as diverse as the bark of a tree and organic cotton. In addition, I experimented with natural dyeing techniques.
