JANINA VOLKMER – HKU 2015 – ‘Samfélag’

In July 2015 Janina Volkmer presented her collection “Samfélag” during the Fashion Design graduating show of HKU University of the Arts in Utrecht and at the Lichting 2015 show. Inspired by her fascination and memories of Iceland and Scandinavia, she was influenced by aurora borealis, coarseness of nature, culture and craftsmanship. The connection between materials shows respect to nature and also the benefits of synthetic influences.

Janina Volkmer collaborated with Knitwear Lab to develop a knitted piece consisting of a double moss stitch punched with shiny foil.
