Artist Statement

...I have often been told that my fashions carry a fragrance of forgotten, otherworldly times . . . of Russian princesses and fairy tales, of the myths and mysteries of physical adornment from ancient history to contemporary couture.

As my clients dress in the fashions I create for them, they seem to enter these other worlds of beauty, fantasy and elegance. The function of my garments is to inspire playful imagination and the expression of beauty.
— Bettina Maria Fahlbusch
