an insight into her passion, inspiration and motivation. 

FINDING BEAUTY

IN THE ABSURD

'I like to capture inspiration from the endless fleeting moments in our daily lives. Whether it is the broken reflection of a light ray, an unusual discoloration of a deteriorated facade front or other effects nature and erosion bring upon this man-made world. My passion for gothic architecture, the renaissance era and baroque influences carry themselves throughout my existence, my sense of style and personal preference. Deeply intrigued by surreal art and technological progress not only becoming part of our daily lives but bodies, I am fascinated by the world of visionairies such as HR Giger or Zdzislaw Beksinski.' - C.M.
 

ACKNOWLEDGING

YOUR SELF-WORTH

'A deeply touching story that accompanies and motivates me until this day is the one of my close friend - a reminder of the incredibly healing power lingerie can have. After struggling with the scars and deformations of multiple surgeries, she never fully learnt to appreciate her feminine self again. When trying on a uniquely crafted set of my lingerie and spontaneously joining a shoot I have organized at her beautiful house in South West London, she dropped her self-doubt and genuinely enjoyed being captured on camera amongst the other professional models. Seeing how simply putting on a beautiful set of lingerie enables to re-discover the love you have for your body and to let go of unrealistic ideals was the most powerful and emotional experience I gained. My mission and goal is to pass on what she felt this very moment, and hope to continue to inspire and empower women with what I do.' C.M.
