INSIDE (R) 

Most of us probably don't think too much about where our clothes come from and the steps that go through to get us to wear them every day. The thoughts of water consumption, child labor or textile destruction plants do not necessarily accompany us when we are getting ready for the morning.

BUT IF WE EXPERIENCE

THAT the manufacturing process of a t-shirt requires on average between 2000-4000 liters of water and that of a pair of jeans around 8000 liters

Thata textile worker for a pittance of around 60 euros a month, often uexploited under unacceptable working conditions, and a large proportion of the workers are children between the ages of 10 and 17.

THAT currently 150 billion annually worldwide Garments are made, but at the same rate in America alone, around 14 million tons are thrown away in pristine condition

THAT Swiss people + keep an average of 118 pieces of clothing in their wardrobes, buy 60 new ones every year, only wear 40% of them and throw away 6.3 kilos per capita every year

THAT around 60-75 million people in the factories dhe fashion industry work, and this fashion industry, as the second largest cause of climate change, is responsible for more greenhouse gas emissions than all international air and sea traffic

THEN

the airy T-shirt that you just bought so cheaply suddenly feels like a burden on your shoulders.

At least that's what happened to me...

 

SO

I thought about what I, as a mother, director, artist, fashion lover and above all, as a person who is responsible for our society, can contribute to a more sustainable approach to fashion. 

 

For 2 years now I have completely renounced the purchase of new clothes and save old clothes from private households, sorted goods at fashion houses, over produced textile leftovers and fabric leftovers from tailors and creative people from destruction. (A surprisingly onerous procurement of materials in part because supply chains are very opaque, with little knowledge or responsibility.)

Yes, I even rummage through the shops of waste disposal plants, go to flea markets and find real treasures!

After a thorough cleaning of the textiles, the artistic part of my work begins. I create patterns, draw designs, separate clothes, mend mistakes, refine fabric parts with the Shibori technique, textile painting, dyeing techniques, sublimation printing, applications,  stencil technique, meaningful quotations from literature, art and philosophy (or my own texts) etc... Finally, I sew the material into completely new, charismatic unique pieces with depth and a touch of glamour.

After my work and its motivations met with a lot of goodwill and positive feedback from the outside, I founded my exclusive, small but fine FASHION RESCUE DESIGN label in the summer of 2022.INSIDE.

INSIDE DESIGNSarise mineIn the moving inner life, a world full of fantasy and depth, you will find conscious and loving bearers +  with a sense of fashion, sustainability and individuality.

That feels good to me.  Good vibes for all of us, for a future worth living!

For two years now, I have completely avoided buying new items of clothing and have been saving old clothes from private households, discarded goods from fashion houses, manufactured textile remnants and fabric leftovers from tailors or creative people from destruction. (A surprisingly difficult procurement of materials, partly because supply chains are very opaque, there is hardly any knowledge or responsibility taken.)

Yes, I even browse waste disposal facility stores, go to flea markets and find real treasures!

After thoroughly cleaning the textiles, the artistic part of my work begins. I create sewing patterns, draw designs, separate clothes, mend mistakes, refine fabric parts using the Shibori technique, textile painting, dyeing techniques, sublimation printing, appliqués, stencil techniques, meaningful quotes from literature, art and philosophy (or my own texts), etc... Finally, I sew the material into completely new, charismatic unique pieces with depth and a touch of glamour.

After my work and its motivations received a lot of goodwill and positive feedback from outside, I founded my exclusive, small but fine FASHION RESCUE DESIGN label INSIDE in the summer of 2022.

INSIDE DESINGS arise from my eventful inner life, a world full of fantasy and depth, find conscious and loving wearers in you. + ⚧ with a sense of fashion, sustainability and individuality.

That feels good to me.  Good vibes for all of us, for a future worth living!
