My inspiration for this collection derived from the archetypes of Carl Jung. In particular: the shadow, the persona and the self. Real pressed flowers are encapsulated in contrasting pleated plastic with the same flowers printed and embroidered onto silks. Each garment forms part of a narrative that represents the human evolution of consciousness that altogether create a glamorous, modern yet functional collection.

Anne Ten Donkelaar | Flower constructions are 3d collages from pressed flowers and cut out flower pictures. Each element is meticulously placed on pins which creates the depth. Some of them are like a fantasy Herbaria, filled with dried flowers or branches, with irregular shapes and sophisticated twists and some refer to planets.
