"All my work as a feminist designer is inspired by muses. Powerful female icons from past and present. Through my designs, I bring them to you to help us shape the world of modern-day feminism.
This season, we raise our rebel flag by joining eleven formidable female pirates for an adventure of a lifetime. More badass than Blackbeard, these women created their own society of outcasts, free from patriarchal rules and gender roles. The treasure that our swashbuckling sisters were after? The same treasure women still crave: freedom. The freedom to create our own future, to only follow our own rules. And have a bloody blast while doing so!"

"Growing up, I never belonged. But even though I got bullied and often felt lonely, deep down inside I already knew: forget fitting in, I was born to stand out! So, I proudly wore my make up and heels to school and played by myself; an outcast in the courtyard. Let them call me a 'freak' and a 'weirdo'; I entertained myself by fantasizing what my life would be like once I was free. One thing was for sure: I was going to be legendary. And it would happen by nurturing exactly that which made me stand out."
