SCULPTURED KNITTING
With nerdy knitting techniques Olga Katarina Foged Willadsen has designed a unique womenswear collection that conveys her deep love for the craft. She has a great insight into technology and materials, and taking a curious look at both, she has studied the potential of knitting in relation to the body. The result is a demonstration of the potentials of knitting that unfold as sculptural shapes and originally crafted details. The aesthetics of the collection is an interaction between these studies and inspiration from the world of art.

SKULPTURELT STRIK
Olga Katarina Foged Willadsen har med kærlighed til håndværket og strikketeknisk nørderi designet en unik womenswear-kollektion. Med stor indsigt og et nysgerrigt blik på både teknik og materialer har hun undersøgt striks potentiale i forhold til kroppen, og i resultatet udfolder strikkens muligheder sig som skulpturelle former og med originalt udarbejdede detaljer. Kollektionens æstetik er et samspil mellem disse undersøgelser og inspiration fra kunstens verden.
