Showcasing my work collaborations I've have done in my time as a Fashion Designer. It is important to showcase that not only can I design based on research, style periods and trends, but also work alongside another designer and taking their fashion aethetic and make clothes that fits their DESIGN DNA. I really enjoy showcasing different sides of design and try to evolve myself by pushing my skills to where I normally wouldn't go.
After my exchange stay at Cornell University, I was asked to intern for Anna Sui at their Design Department & Pattern Making department. This is my 3rd Semester internship essay, done while working at Anna Sui. The internship assignment thesis was about how to introduce the Anna Sui brand into the Scandinavian market. Taking her eclectiv prints, colors and universes and try to mold them after a more minimalistic Scandinavian approach and style, but still keep it Anna Sui 100%.
Jesper Høvring is the leading couture designer in Denmark. I was honored to be part of his design & pattern making team for 3 months, These styles shown, are the styles I created during my internship and it's inspired by Høvrings Design DNA and aesthetic. Høvring is a classic, romatic designer, with eye for detail and great finish in his styles.
"Only the best is good enough, so it is absolutely crucial that I have a strong team behind me so I can provide a very high quality and service. Tradition and perfection above all – I stick to the classic craft traditions by producing handmade creations tailored to the individual customer’s needs."
I was interning and then hired by CD COMPANY in Århus to help in their dedign department, working on new designs for the 2019 collection + labels, zip pullers, badges, style sheets and working in Navision and update products for the suppliers.
CD company is an international textile trading company specialized in technical clothing with a high level of functionality for outdoor, hunting and leisure activities. They offer our expertise in developing, supervising the manufacturing and logistics.
Finally, they deliver products for Private Label brands all over Europe from our head office in Denmark. Focusing on the layering principles for active outdoor activities: Base Layer, Thermal Layer and Protection Layer, we offer garments from technical underwear over fleece, pile, and soft shells to padded and or taped shell jackets, pants and suits.
This collaboration was my second semester exam assignment, but due to me leaving for New York early, I had to take this exam during my 3rd semester. This collaboration assignment was to take a famous person and integrate their philosophy and aesthetic into the brand MONKI.
I was inspired by MONKI's campain called MONKIFESTO. It is about brinig issues that are central to young women (and everyone else) today into the limelight, like periods, body hair, cyber bullying, masturbation, love and sisterhood. I wanted to incorpurate a LGBT person into this mix, because many nonbinary people do not get the recognition they deserve, even though they go through the same struggles. I chose the Drag performer Conchita Wurst, the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest winner as a representative for this collab.
