Profile

  • I am have a MA in fashion knitwear from Designschool Kolding. I am looking for an
    extrovert job in the fashion industry with a knitwear focus.I work with knitting as a design tool to shape garments. I have a technical focus and a holistic approach to material, shape and garment construction. I find it motivating to create solutions which unite aesthetic ambition with clever construction methods. In my opinion knit is a medium where textile and shape are equal and are created by each other, with each other - completely interdependent. In my recent graduate collection from Designschool Kolding I specialised in digital knitting. I explored the shape potentials of this discipline and I worked determined with particular production methods to avoid waste.
