Fun, incredibly fun! It often starts with a stereo urge in both of us: Let’s make a new collection. Let’s dive deep in visuals, images, patterns, prints and research, test, try, invent, innovate. Delicious. Our visual collections are reflections of our inner selves. Two years ago, we devoted all our time to healing, self-healing and healing techniques, thus our collection had healing as the theme: healing oneself, the other, and the planet.
And for one year, we’ve been working on our next collection, Alternative Prints, which will celebrate alternative systems, people and communities working to lift the veil – the veil of the corrupt, unhealthy, unsustainable and exploitative systems in all areas of life. There is a clear road leading us towards much more free, open and transparent choices in all sectors.
Look at #MeToo in cinema, Abuse of Power Comes as No Surprise in art, gun violence protests, etc.; people are fed up with being treated like idiots. These are all steps in the ladder of a paradigm shift in the collective consciousness. Old systems of governance and oppression, in politics, race and gender, are starting to weaken and no longer fit with the contemporary mindset.
“At the end of the day, other than love and nature, it is all an illusion. A large part of humanity is living in other people’s fantasies, which I do not agree with. Thus, I am creating a fantasyland with my cosmic sister.” Pinar Demirdag
