Yvonne’s way of working as a designer is very intuitive.
She believes in an organic process where intuition and emotion is the first guidance.
For her, that’s the way to tell an honest story about her desires as a creative individual.
She paints fashion from intimate inspirations with color, material and shape,
always involved with a lot of handwork and detail to give the garment more value.
Her work is very detailed and characterized by different handwork techniques, which she reinterprets in a contemporary way.
