From the first collection on, art, performance, images, atmosphere, music and words have a substantial role in the whole idea, summing up, or rather dissolve the kind of the Nadine Sahm sentiments. Always at the core of her inner universe.

Her ambition is to create the complexity around fashion, bonded to everything with a strong impact, without taking fashion too serious.

Mesmerized by abstract trains of thoughts, drawn by the point where fashion replacing the body with something abstract, that straddle between fanciful tales and a serious straightforward design. To produce surreal and challenging garments and at the same time wearable is a role in which she flourished. She conveys such intricacies through her designs and artwork. She experiments with shape and color, creating fluidity through structure and detail.

A play between colors and materials, constructed and draped silhouettes is a recurring characteristic in her designs, strongly interpreted through interdisciplinary and conceptional work with a zeitgeist for design and art, for the now and tomorrow. Essential as the clothes themselves are attitudes, moods and statements about independence and individuality.

Reality is not a fact.
