As part of my Bachelor project I organized a fashion workshop with a group of seven mentally disabeled people of the LEBENSHILFE.
After an introduction to the world of fashion, the artists created paintings on canvas and produced paper-fabric collages on the theme WIR FAHREN ANS MEER - HOLIDAY TEAM.
These works were an important source of inspiration for the development of the collection HOLIDAY TEAM.
For further information please have a look at the blog
