Costume - Portrait of a man
I started the year 2009/2010 with the remake of a 17th-century costume from the painting "Portrait of a Man" made by the Dutch painter Gerard ter Borch. I fell for the shape of the silhouette and the luxury, but also for the little Christmas tree-ish feeling of it. The remake is fully made in white fabrics.
I examined not only the way the clothes were made and from which fabric, but also the way of living in the 17th century, famous persons, new inventions during that century, etc. This study inspired me for my collection "Paper Bag".
