The theme of home inspired me to create the second collection by l’amour est bleu.
As the daughter of Vietnamese parents, the search for my home has occupied me all my life. My cultural roots are and will always remain part of my identity, but at the same time they are also the reason why I never felt at home in my place of birth, Hamburg. My first trip to the home of my parents gave me such a strong sense of belonging that I thought I had finally found my home. But I was wrong. I didn’t find my home in Vietnam either.
Over the years I have come to realise that, for me, home does not hang in one place. My emotional home is my culture and the values that my family gave me. My local home is Germany, this is my anchor and this is where I feel at home.
