With my label "Haute Gothure", specialized in bespoke dark fashion, I want to create a world where everyone is dressed in extravagant clothing. I want to make women (or perhaps men) feel like a queen or goddess in refined, elegant gowns and express their inner darkness. I want them to wear these costumes on their wedding day, a masquerade ball, on stage, in a video clip or for a photoshoot. Maybe even in a movie, theatre, or any other occasion. Every design is unique and handmade with a dark touch. I focus on the personality of each customer and make use of my sensitivity for soft and high quality fabrics.
Earlier I got the opportunity to make a historical dress for metal singer, Tarja Turunen. This was part of a photo project where she represented Anne Boleyn. This was the first time I made something for someone else.
Since 2008 I’m active as model and that’s where I used most of my creativity by creating my own concepts and stylings. I get inspiration from movies, series and even music clips from my favorite bands like Within Temptation and Evanescence. But also fashion designers like Alexander McQueen, Elie Saab, Dolce & Gabbana and the smaller names (but not less amazing) like Royal Black Couture, Bibian Blue and Linda Friesen are big inspirations.
I graduated in 2016 as Fashion designer with my Mongolian inspired collection “Fight like a Warrior”. It’s a sequel on my first small collection “Like a Bird in a Cage” which both describes my phases and experiences in school and even today where I was/am never free enough to develop myself and my style. But I’m very stubborn and I’ll always fight back.
In 2018 I challenged myself to participate in the Foundations Revealed contest with my first corset “Elytra”. I applied for the “Beginner” category but the organisation found my work more “Improver” worthy, so I got an upgrade. For me this was a reason to feel I have already won.
For me it’s important I can make the customer feel confident. I want to touch the people’s heart and be honest with them.
Sharon was present at Danza for the last two years in a row! This year she'll be there for reception of the VIP Guests togetherwith the members of the Organisation and the Guests of Honour.
