Project title:

One eye laughing, the other crying



Based on my personal interpretation of Franz Kafka’s text “On the Gallery” from 1919, I have worked on a line of clothing that reflects the mood in the text. It is a line that includes elements from the circus world that Kafka describes. The line also expresses the contradictions and absurdity of the circus life.                    

My focus in this project has been to work with print, colour and shape. I combined these elements and made them work together as a unity. Each outfit has its unique print, which relates to the shape. Colours and expressions form a whole and bind the singular pieces together to an interrelated line.

The poem inspired me because of its various intense scenes and moments. I used print and shapes to express figurative elements and moments of the poem.




Describe your collection with three words?

tears – laughter – circus


What techniques did you use:

I worked with print, digital as well as hand print. I used the computer to develop  print patterns and laser cutting. Some elements were drawn in 3d programs to define their complex patterns.




Which garment was most difficult to make? 



How long did you work on this project?

I worked on it for 5 months.
