I am autodidact in everything what I do, I can't draw clothes I drape clothes that's the way I find my shapes.
My inner journey started in Marocco.
My mirror was Marocco.
In 1995 Romy visited Marocco for the first time during a vacation. Romy had a huge resistance to go to Morocco on vacation. But the universe pushed her in that direction. One of the cities on her tour was Marrakech.,known as the red city.Arriving in Marrakech she had a feeling of "coming home" after a long journey.
After loosing her job in 2001 Romy , in search of new professional opportunities at the age of 41,she returned to Marrakech still remembering the impressions of her visit to the city.She wanted also discover who she really was or finding her "True Identity ".This was the first time in her life that I followed my feelings and made a decision.
In the souk of Marrakesh I was inspired by the colours of Sabra viscose yarns. And a few days later I met someone who still had old knitting machines and decided spontaneously to knit my own fabrics. Because of my enthusiasm and not knowing.Creativity, playfulness and spontaneity brought me to a new level in my life.Without knowledge of design.Once she returned home to Antwerp,Belgium her creativity was intuitively stimulated while working with the knitted fabric.
On the basis of her creative experience with viscose her first haute couture collection "Magic Colours" appeared which was immediately sold to Barney's New York in the year 2002.
Motivated by this Romy returned several times to Morocco each time she discovered new facets of her Identity which resulted in new creations like ,"Radiance", "Goldline" and "Soul of Africa".
In 2005 I discovered my playful "Inner Child".I got an assignment to design a logo for a children's hospital.They rejected my design because to futuristic for them.That was my good luck otherwise I had sold my "Inner Child".At that moment I recognized myself when I was a child of 5 years old.I already saw futuristic images.The organic shape that I designed I called "Wooky".I started to play spontaneously with this shape and was surprised how many different patterns came out with one basic shape.Patterns for interior, fashion,stationary,decorative objects and art.I called this collection Darsahna.
During her last visit in 2010 it dawned on Romy that this city in fact her spiritual home and she decided to travel back and continue her journey in Marrakech.Making use of the vibrant spiritual energies of Marocco and during this journey she discovered her energy healing qualities.
My first knitted collection.
My first collection
Everything is energy and my inner journey brought me back to my Divine energy my real name Romilda.
Almost 60 years I am used to Romy and I discovered that I had to let her go and step into my new energy Romilda since 10 May 2020. Curious what will bring this new energy into my life.
