Painted the Party / Arnhem Mode Biennale, 2009
For this occasion Painted Series made garments for each other,
to be worn at a party;
an exploration on how to make clothing
in interaction with the future wearer
Interviewing the other,
standing by her/his own wardrobe
‘Who would you like to look like for a day?
‘Where, from which part of your body, would you like a garment to start?’
‘What is your favorite piece of clothing and why?’
‘For which occasion in your life would you have special garments made?’
—As a garment with a soul, I grew out of dedication and adventure.
There was no plan for me in advance.
‘Which piece of clothing would you never throw away?’
