Following the remark of the famous fashion icon Diana Vreeland: “The eye has to travel”. In my imagination I embarked on a trip on fabrics, colors, and patterns and I should like to add “…and the mind has to travel as well”! All fine jewelery by Anna B.

A Mental Journey To India

Mathujana and I met in a store when I was doing the shopping for a styling job in Berlin.
Somehow I found that she stood out from the crowd with her look and I asked her if she would model my recent collection. Her exotic appearance inspired me to take a mental journey to India.
In my imagination I embarked on a trip of fabrics, colors  and patterns and to the country of my phantasy.

Hem Lines and Indian Kitchen

As Mathujana has only finished high school her mother came along to the shooting overseeing rigorously the lengths of hemlines and depths of necklines while sharing mouth watering Indian coocking recipes.

Individual Beauty

And although this wasn’t my intention from the start, I am realizing that showing different types of women and beauty in my clothes can be a subversive way of making a statement concerning the migration debate going on here in Europe at the moment. Fashion diversity is still an issue: society’s perception of “beautiful“ is pretty  narrow and it seems absurd that light hair and fair skin is the esthetic ideal that rules in most parts of the world.
I believe it’s time to celebrate the individual and not ‚a type‘!
