Major project:

Phantom Body

Phantom Body presents an imaginary vision of the future where our bodies will start to flicker between the physical and virtual realms. Our clothing, our secondary bodies, will anchor us again to this physical plane and allow us to explore our surroundings, our bodies and our clothing, as we once used to be able to. This collection is designed to be viewed within a special performance. The choreography for it was created by Lisa-Marie Hennig-Olsen and performed by Songkun Wan and Garrett Nunnink.


  • I am a designer, the modern day alchemist. My practice is defined by my interest in the almost magical qualities we bestow upon clothing and how these qualities turn them into more than just objects.
