Tine Mollatt grew up amongst, and in between theatre stages and old houses, new places. Four years old in the ballet studio, ten years old on stage at the theatre, seventeen years old sewing costumes for the Opera. Every place a new fairy tale. Every dressing room a whole new universe. New scents, new materials. Uncovering costumes from days past, hanging in closets, folded in chests. Laces, capes, sequins, silk. Costumes that came to life at night, on stage. By actresses and opera singers. The old master pieces, created to be used over and over, tailored to fit the next artist, the next play. A Danish poet once wrote: Our childhood is a source from which we ladle our whole life. For founder and creator of by Ti Mo, Tine Mollatt, this was where it all started.
For Tine truthfulness and honesty are also guiding beacons. She does not believe in exploitation of any kind to reach her goals. Not towards the people involved on the way, nor towards the animals that provide materials or towards mother earth. She believes in sustainability on all levels. She believes the time of mass consumption is soon to be past. She believes in high quality clothing that’s long lasting. She believes there is a right way to approach the calculation of costs, without cutting any corners. She believes in the value that lies within the garment and she believes in the masterful skill that lies in tailoring.
