I’m not into shopping for the sake of shopping. What I value is to know the designer, to understand how they lived when working on the new collection, to see the way it influenced the result.
We live in the time of overproduction. As a result of mindless consumption, everyone accumulates an incredible amount of junk that gathers dust in the closet after being worn only once. Nobody looks at these pieces; they have no past and no future. But the pieces we love, have depth and substance, they get passed down to the next generation. That’s why to me, conscious consumption is also knowing that I will pass down to my daughters all of my dresses, shoes and jackets with their own history.
