MA work

Drawing inspiration from my Scandinavian heritage, my collection is influenced by and derived from traditional Sami costume and the changeable colour-sweep effects from the Northern Lights, fused with a touch of the futuristic Esrange Space Center in Lapland. My aim has been to combine traditional handcraft with digital techniques in a playful, harmonious mix of synthetic and natural fibres, creating witty, wearable pieces for those with a love for uniqueness, innocence and the unconventional. The spin-off from the collection will be to raise awareness of the neglected Sami people.
