As a designer Anne-Marie Herckes works on a miniaturisation of icons from fashion history : Jacket, bag or shoe, everything is reduced to its simplest and worked as a 2dimensional image. Little icons appear that one can attach as a brooch to clothing, or as a charm/strap to bags and phones. An ideal garderobe with a blink of an eye.

Her accessoires have to be seen as an hommage to fashion and its creators, but not without irony.
