Lieve Van Gorp autumn—winter 1998—99.
Leather, the material of her first accessories, still features, both in the clothes and in the accessories — bags, wallets, belts, purses, wristbands, ties and other flights of fancy. Predominant colours are pale blue, black and white, as well as a range of greys. 
Lieve Van Gorp’s collections blend icons of Catholicism with rock star cult. This mixture is carefully expressed in the ‘merchandising’, which always accompanies her collections. Posters, pins with skulls, the letter ‘L’, exemplify her universe. True to her statement “In my dreams I’m a rock star, but unfortunatly I can’t sing”, Lieve Van Gorp mentions as sources of inspiration rock ‘n’ roll and country & western music, headstrong women like Madonna, Courtney Love, K.D. Lang, Patsy Cline, Skunk Anansie and Patricia Hearst, and men like Jesus Christ, Che Guevara, Willy De Ville and Elvis Presley. 
Working with diversity within one creation is Lieve Van Gorp’s strength. Emotion and agression, softness and bondage, films versus real life, male and female and everything in-between, conservatism and avant-garde, tradition and innovation, leather, love and trust, Gothic rock and classicism…, all these are parts of the Lieve Van Gorp puzzle.

Maison Martin Margiela Haute Couture Fall 2012

by Tony Briggs c.1992


A collection of eight confessions, hand written and court transcripts, of convicted criminals. It is then reduced to only those sentences were the criminal is talking about his or hers own emotions. The perpetrators personal landscape of guilt is revealed with no descriptions about the actual criminal act. The most extreme act of violence contains something that we can all recognize in ourselves; the inner psychological patterns of reasoning and justification, remorse and/or the lack of it.
