Quote Ilja Visser
“In the metaverse,where creative aspects are limitless, I consider bringing both physical and metaphysical aspects together in a feminine, nonchalant undertone. With the results of this ‘urban cool’ abaya collection, I bring creativity to another level. I consider it an honor to project my creative vision on such a historical garment and to bring this vision into the digital world”.
