Pure Awkward by Oda Pausma
"This collection was inspired on work of the artist Hans Bellmer, 'Les jeux de la pouppee'. His photography and artworks are still very contemporary to me although they have been published at least fifty years ago. I was mostly inspired by the fragmenting of the objects and the feel and light of the photography. For this collection I used different quality’s of silks and leathers which are my favorite materials to work with."
Oda Pausma (1985) born in The Netherlands graduated 'excellent' July 2010 for her Master Degree in fashion design at the Fashion Institute Arnhem (FIA). Most of her work is inspired by poetic sources as; music, artists, books, phenomenons and writers. She has a great love for the make and detailing of her designs. Silks and leathers are often the key fabrics in her collections. Sober-Chique with international allure is how others described her work. Last year she was one of the selected participants to show her very personal story '29.10.2010' at the welknown fashion competition 'Festival Hyères'. Nowadays Oda Pausma is focused on exploring her professional experiences to aim for her future goal; her own fashion house.
