Through the collection "SHE" I wanted to focus on a subject that is as intimate as possible but also problematic femininity. The idea of the collection, initially started as an inquiry about my own knowledge about the complexity of the female body, developed quickly into a mote ample investigation of the status of women in the world: from women rights oppression in Iran, to sexual abuse in Africa... and more. I did not at all wanted to develop the collection around these brutal issues, but rather to evoke the beautiful side of what feminity means to me.
