Zilla Leutenegger met her old kindergarten friend Lela Scherrer again by pure coincidence at the World Expo in Japan in 2005. Scherrer had meanwhile become a fashion designer in Basel. The two decided to collaborate on a project, hence the creation of "Zillalelalelazilla – A Tailor-Made Collection". For Zilla Leutenegger, the joint project was an excursion into the world of fashion, which she annotated and illustrated with her drawings. At the same time, she acted as a model in the collection presentation. Lela Scherrer in turn drew inspiration from the art world. The works that have emerged from the collaboration revolve around issues of identity, with the artists recasting themselves again and again.
