I remember very well when I started with my creation. I had different pieces of leather and I had absolutely no idea what I wanted to design at that moment.
Transformation is moving on.
When I look back on my own journey that started in 2002. I can only say that everything what came on my path was neccesair to undo myself from old patterns.
Patterns that you repeat and you are not aware that you repeat what you know from your parents. I thought I had a different life.
After all those years I stripped off what I thought it was me and at the same time I build the new me.
Marocco was for me the biggest mirror of myself in all those transformation years. I traveled a lot in the South of Marocco. Marrakech was always the place an anchor where I returned.
I always said I am a berber woman I felt it very strongly something from a past life. That I experienced also in this life to undo also that habit from deep inside.
When I created in 2004 my collection Goldline the shapes where an inspiration from a past life. I found out when I visit a town in the South of Marocco. I was surprised when I saw the women with their typical style of clothes. I recognised my way of draping the fabric. My collection was done in my way.
The houses where I lived after my transformations and experiences I moved on to the next one. Our body is as a house and your house is as a reflection what is going on with your inside world.
I lived 4 years in the Medina of Marrakech in 2 different houses. Then I moved outside of Marrakech and lived in a little village between the berbers. Then I moved even more in a sollitude in a typical traditional house in the nature. Then I moved to the North of Marocco in a typical ferm house without water back to basic. After that experience back to my anchor Marrakech.
Yes all the time on the move. Like a snake who steps out of the old skin. Every time I left a old part of me behind. This transformation I did alone exept the North there I was in a relationship to leave a lot of old emotions behind.
Back to Marrakech a new place this time an appartement in this place I was only with myself and myself for more then 1,5 years now. The deepest connection with myself.
Now ready to make the next step and what this will be I don’t know but what I know when time is ready I will know 😇

You will ask yourself why wanted?
Most of the time we associate our inner child with the pain and we can't see that we put our inner child in prison. If we gave energy on our positive part of our inner child than she/he can come out of prison.A child is pure and like to play and we are forgotten to play in life. We don't see the value of being playful. The spontaneity and the creativity from a child is the most important thing in this way she/he will discover and experience new things.
Creativity can help you to find solutions even for daily life issues when you become to serious it become very boring in every aspect of your life. You can be playful and creative in your kitchen to make funny plates for your children or husband 😉 Discover new parts of yourself what will gave you new positive energies. When you are to busy with problems you will atrack only problems because you feed this energy.
A child looks at things in a different way and isn't afraid. The child become afraid if you are showing your worries. Discover the new values of being spontanies, playful and creative and your life will change in a positive way.
