Keep in mind: Ute Ploier

“What we wear is more than just fabric. It is the idea of how we want to be perceived by others. The fabric, the colour, the details, the styling – everything tells a story about the person wearing it. My collections play with dress codes and crack them up. My work is about liberation because it is about creating more freedom of choice and moving away from stereotypes of masculinity.”

Trivia:

•Textiles and the manufacturing process are a constant focus as well. Layering and mixing of various special or unusual fabrics and meticulous construction details pervade the collection.
