fashion

 

I received my first sewing machine from my mother when I was six years old. I have gone in and out of phases making things, but some time in the last few years I became attached, and make things on any free weekend I can. I now try to make most of my own clothing. It is both a love of the design and construction process, and my way of taking a stand against the fast fashion industry, which is entangled with sweatshops and pollution. I have also tried my hand at reconstructing ancient garments based on both surviving textiles and their representations. Below is a men’s and women’s Sogdian kaftan, as well as some photos of a small selection of my garments. I regularly post my newest creations on my instagrams (@hensellek).
