This Blossom collection means a lot to me. It was around three years ago, a dying girl that read too much and became best friends with books, told me a word that later become important to me.
"Kintsukuroi is a Japanese art, an act of fixing broken pottery by putting glue and golden coloring into it. The wisdom behind that, is about how sometimes things are much more beautiful after it was being broken.
About being resilient and carry on. About keeping things and value the experience or history that it carries with, instead of just discarding it. About giving second chances. Or in life, about keep on living no matter how hurt and broken our heart and life is. About being a human."
Blossom does embodies the spirit of kintsukuroi on the creating process, that some part of the collection were parts of my older collections that being re-styled and re-design. To give a second chances on them, and to let each of them blossom on their own time and moment.
However, it does carry the spirit of kintsukuroi more to me on the designing process. This collection represents what I felt these days.
After my miscarriages, I never thought I would be able to be this happy and content, again. I thought I have lost parts of me and the hole cracks in my heart will never be filled with anything. Life and reality, despite how they actually are the same as before, seem very different to me after.
I could safely say, I have come a long way. It takes years and many tears to be able to be at this point today, that I could genuinely say I'm really happy and content with my life. That I'm in control of every little part of it, while also feeling the freedom at the most. I could say proudly that I've let myself to be blossom again 😊.
My only hope is, this collection will share my positive vibes to all of you who see them and will gave strength and being a reminder to carry on, keep going strong, and value your history, to you who will wear it later. 😊💛
