Grattis Sara Lundberg som i slutet på förra veckan vann Designers Nest - en tävling för modestudenter som anordnas i samband med modeveckan i Köpenhamn. Sara tog i våras sin masterexamen i mode på Textilhögskolan och det var med hennes examenskollektion hon kammade hem första priset. Stort grattis!
Såhär beskriver hon sitt arbete:
This work aims to discuss the contemporary view on religion and is an investigation of the body’s capacity for spiritual expression. By combining spirituality with contemporary fashion scene and what is praised today, the result presents a suggestion for a modern religion, with references to the development of religion through the history of humanity and how the body has functioned in that, exchanged to materials, shapes and symbols used of the contemporary man.
The work defines spirituality and religion as two different things, that spirituality is genetic and religion is based on culture. It is be based on the findings of the connections between culture and religion, the ideas of human transformed into gods, and aims to state the importance of religion in societies, even in our modern one, and that is it natural to believe, but the work also aims to brakes the illusion of religions as “real”, but rather is a social and cultural construction to help us deal with our inherited spirituality.

Ett stort grattis även till Louise Wånggren, också från textilhögskolan som knep en andra plats i samma tävling! Hon visade upp sin examenskollektion från kandidatutbildningen.
Hon beskriver sitt arbete såhär:
In clothing the fusing technique is foremost used as a shape preserving and hidden discipline. Fusing is used to merge layers of material together to gain a certain capacity or a certain expression. There is a lack of examples in fashion, yet a few, where fusing is used as a tool for creating shape, and where the technique is emphasized. This investigation comprehends the interaction between layers and the impact of the fused and the non-fused areas. The variables of the drape of the fabric, the shape of the fused part, and the symbiosis of the under layer and the over layer is crucial to demonstrate the method.
When fusing layers together to generate form, the best result found in the series of experiments in this work came from the impact of the circle. The circle allows the fabric to drape around the fused area and creating shape where the fusing technique is also visible.
Through analyzing the very fundamental core of the idea of merging layers together, this project aims to investigate the possibilities of developing the expression of shape through fusing. The work and experiments demonstrate a starting point for an alternative construction method.
