GALACTIC LILATECH is inspired by Lars Wedels passion for the 1920’s America, called Art Deco & Art Nouveau, combined with his longing for Asian culture, especially Japanese culture and the Bangkok neon light district. Lars has been looking at the SS20 trends and has combined these worlds with the trend of Galaxy and bold neon colors.
FASHION & GRAPHIC DESIGNER
GALACTIC LILATECH will transport you into an otherworldly atmosphere, feeling like you are floating among the Northern Lights, various galaxies and time travel. The prints and colors should transport you into the world of galactic lilacs, purples, pinks, along side neon blues, turquoise and yellow, white and gold for contrast.
"EVERY TIME YOU CREATE A PIECE OF ART,
WHETHER IT'S A GARMENT, DRAWING OR
WHATEVER YOU CONSIDER ART, YOU ARE
ACTUALLY GIVING A PIECE OF YOURSELF
TO THE WORLD"
Lars Wedel graduated VIA Design in 2019 and is now a Fashion Design, with skills outside the usual FD. With over 10 years experience as a freelance Graphic Artist, Lars Wedel combines his skills from his Fashion Studies, such as drawing, sewing and pattern making, with graphic skills in Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, but also with Webdesign and create artwork for textile- and paper print.
Attending VIA University College & Cornell University has given me great knowledge in pattern making, machine + hand sewing, textile print, knitwear, CAD, laser cutting and in generel challenged me to learn as much as possible. Interning at Anna Sui and Jesper Høvring and working very close with them and their design and pattern making team made me aware of the fast pace environment and how much I enjoy the rush.
Perfecting my skills attending Portfolio Building Classes at Cornell University and attending Herningsholm and VIA Design, I know how to work and utilize most of the Adobe Creative Cloud package. Mostly Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, but also filming and creating movies in Premiere Pro and After Effects. I make websites using Wordpress and other online platforms and I have a basic understanding in creating HTML and CSS coding.
