Art from the heart
As a mother and a daughter the choice what I would create was easily made. I wanted to capture the eyes of the two most important women in my life: my daughter and my mother. On top of that, I also photographed my own eyes, creating a picture that embodies three generations of “Dekkers empowerment”. The eyes of my daughter Zilver and mine are framing a delicate, little but o so important message: dare to grow, dare to explore, dare to trust. It’s our little power mantra.
The result was amazing. I couldn’t think of a more beautiful and more loving donation for this good cause. But, I also couldn’t imagine not having that beautiful piece of art hanging on my own wall! So the best thing to do was to be the highest bidder myself. Every morning I wake up looking at their faces, feeling so lucky to love and to be loved by such amazing women. The best art truly is art from the heart.
For the designs of this Fall Winter 2014 collection, I was inspired by the heroic story of Joan of Arc. Reflecting the past years while having experienced all aspects of life, I found this legend of Joan of Arc admirable and inspirational.
