playing with patterns
'playing with patterns' is my graduate collection for the MA programme in fashion design.
As a young fashion designer on the doorway to work in fashion, I am questioning my place in a fast-moving and unsustainable industry, that I am gonna work in. The project leads me to discourse about many relevant topics, like the transgenerational passing of values and skills. Therefore I am learning about traditional craftsmanship: exploring how traditional techniques can be preserved or translated using new technologies, is what I am integrating in my future designs.
Also, only using deadstock materials and archived patterns must not mean limitation, it serves as my source of creativity and forces me to think out of the box. 'playing with patterns' juxtaposes innovation & tradition, handicraft & machinery, digital & physical, coincidence & planning, and breaks with behaviour patterns in a playful way.
By opening up the working process of my graduate collection, you can watch me doing my first steps in the direction of an open-minded, joined forces, and changing kind of industry.
