As an advocate for a cross-cultural and borderless world, Saskia uses fashion to impact society.
Her work aims to help disarm prejudice.
She repurposes and de-commissions uniforms to battle the uniformity that they represent.
Demonstrating both our cultural differences and commonalities, her collections are a celebratory juxtaposition of diversity.
An intrinsic part of her identity developed thanks to her diverse heritage,
one that has involved migration and cultural fuses across generations.
She believes that dis-placement, as an abstract concept, should become our tangible home, regardless of location and appearance.
SASKIA provides an antidote to polarisation through a sustainable and circular
design, production, purchase and reuse process.
Her key differentiator is that the utilised recycled source material is directly associated with the brand's inherent concept and mission.
For instance, in her collection, "Dis-Armed" she subverted the viewer by using old military surplus as a tool against itself.
SASKIA is a socially-pertinent fashion label that shifts mindsets. It redefines and re-designs garments with a brutal past for a brighter, more accepting future.
