I have devoted my three years at Konstfack to clothes, garments and fashion. My degree project is a collaboration with Jennie Engman Ahrenbring who is studying for a Bachelor’s degree in fashion design at the School of Textiles in Borås.

We have experience from two different courses in the same field, a meeting of processes, attitudes, procedures and ideas. We explore different opportunities for moving towards a sustainable fashion industry. Does this involve organic material, material that does not require frequent washing, or clothes that we never grow tired of?

We want to know whether it is possible to raise the value of garments and overcome a throwaway mentality, without compromising vanity or change. The results of our work are presented as a collection.
