Saruti often uses the mixture of vintage and contemporary ideas. She sought to capture the emotion and power of childish, feminine and jollification then presented through incorporated of embroidery and digital techniques.
“In the realms of the unreal” is interpreted in the arrays of unique, innovative and experimental party-wear collection. Saruti worked in series, synthesizing surrealism and knitting technique to produce works that emphasized as a new baby doll avant-garde silhouette. Saruti was inspired by Henry Darger who has become famous after his death by discovering 15,145 pages, single-spaced fantasy manuscript. The visual subject matter of his work were often violent, even brutal, displaying the torture and murder of the children in beautiful idyllic scenes in Edwardian interiors and tranquil flowered landscapes populated by children and fantastic creatures.
