“I believe that life is about collecting stories. From small experiences to big adventures. “

Besides collecting stories, Sia collects inspiration. Objects, materials and images to inspire her designs. Attraction to materials, visual compositions and touch is essential. These observations are most often used to create a mood or an atmosphere as a starting point to her design process.

“I am always led by my intuition.”

With intuition as her main guidance and textiles as the leading material Sia designs objects, installations and concepts. Her designs aim is to twist and turn the items or experiences we already know.
Through a holistic approach to design she strives to work cross-disciplinary in order to make new creations and collaborations. 

“The way we expose and preserve things are just as essential to me as the product itself.”

Sia is a designer in fashion, but not a fashion designer. She is highly inspired by fashion, not necessarily as an aesthetic expression or a collection of garments, but as a reflection of society. Fashion and trends are reflections of current- and future society. Fashion is, alongside the art world, one of the first places to see new societal changes expressed through visuals and materials.

Next to her design practice Sia is a co-founders of the curatorial collective pro tempore.art The collective creates exhibition between exhibitions by placing emerging artist into the established galleries.
