Textiles for Fashion

The inspiration behind Karoline’s collection comes from her fascination with the sea, in particular corals. She wanted to study the free-flowing shapes, textures and vibrant colours and capture the qualities in a variety of methods and mediums. The technical aspect of re-creating these forms through a knitted medium found numerous challenges. From primary research Karoline transformed ordinary materials into complex and unexpected knitted pieces by combining yarns such as elastic and cotton coated Nylon. She was able manipulate machine techniques by creating 3D surfaces and hybrid structures through knotting techniques. The technical process of creating a knitted three-dimensional form is an important aspect in her practice. Karoline’s final collection of fabrics is for a fashion context and challenge ideas of conventional knitted garments. The vivid aesthetic creates fresh and energetic textiles.
