IN MEMORY OF MY MOTHER
My mother was a seamstress and I grew up watching her at her sewing machine working for hours on end. She made my clothes when I was a little girl and sometimes sewed the same dresses for herself to make us look like twins. She was only 53 years old when she passed away of cancer.
I was living in the US already when she became ill and she asked to see me. Little did I know it would be my last time I would ever see her again. I booked my flight and told her that I would be there in 5 days. She counted the numbers out loud, "1, 2, 3, 4, 5". To that time I didn't know that she counted out these days to collect all of her energy to stay alive until I got there. She passed away in my arms eight hours after I stepped into her bedroom.
The more I was getting closer to her age when she passed the more I felt a need to express myself in connection with her. The thought of bringing fashion and art together evolved out of this wish.
This fashion line was created in memory of my mother. Partial proceeds support cancer research programs.
