SHAME / VAIN / womenswear, fashion collection


Shame and Vain as two of the most influential powers define our behaviour towards the own body. They are opponents - one desiring admiration and spotlights while the other one arouses the yearning for invisibility. One seeks attention, the other one detests it. Vain willingly exhibits itself, the ashamed is exhibited involuntarily. But beyond these contradictions the boundaries are ambiguous and each one loves to masquerade as the other.
Transformed into a collection neither shame nor vain are used in explicit pictures, but it displays silhouettes that are rather introverted and only unveil its features and peculiarities on a second glance.
