When sustainable fashion meets chakra philosophy – Mona Shatry and Jasmin Breidenbach have gone to a whole new level with their editorial: Each outfit symbolizes the energetic qualities that are associated with a specific chakra. Through the deep connection between fashion and the spiritual world, the two visionaries from Munich want to show how sustainable decisions are in harmony with the transformative energy of the chakras.
“We only work with sustainable and regional brands that share our values. Together we are embarking on a quest for positive change in the industry by infusing sustainability into the essence of our artistic expression.“

When we repress our emotions or suppress our emotional content, whatever we are denying accumulates weight, or what I call vibrational density. This heaviness can take on many forms. But in all cases, it impedes your spirit‘s natural ability to shine.
– Panache Desai
If you always put limit on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.
– Bruce Lee
