Bout Me.

Profile

I hold a Master of Arts in Fashion Futures from London College of Fashion and have a design background in footwear design. Principles from emerging design inspire me to practice design from new perspectives, and I love to explore the possibilities within sustainability. I am very curious about what shapes us as humans both in our societies as well as through nature, and I find myself working with projects that are related to understanding behavior and identities. 

Experience

For me, the most valuable way to gain knowledge is to step into the unknown and become a part of your surroundings. Listen, watch, ask. I´ve had amazing learning experiences as I have traveled and lived in many places. These moments have all taught me invaluable knowledge and awareness, which I incorporate into my everyday life as well as my design practice. 

Epic moments

This list is long, but here are a few of my unforgettable, challenging and most influential moments:

- When I (a former materialist) realized that I want to start changing the system

- When I started to study MA Fashion Futures at UAL London College of Fashion

- The Youth Fashion Summit and Fashion Summit in Copenhagen 2016

- My Masters dissertation

- The Marimekko Designathon 2017

- Starting my own business: CreatingKind
