Revive your Wardrobe

be the inspiration

…all those pieces of clothing you bought and never wore…
…all those pieces of clothing you wore and never felt comfortable in…
…all those pieces of clothing you loved and never dared to wear…

My inspiration is a dedication to the Accordion player at Hallesches Tor.
The pleated structure of the instrument made me think of the garment long forgotten – a pleated skirt!

Both the instrument and the skirt are defined by the movement of a pleated structure,
releasing something of the emotional excitement of revealing a secret.
Pleats transform with every movement.

The strapping of the instrument to the body is symbolized through the ribbons:
a celebration of the joy set loose by the passion of the player.
