lærke Marie Valum
In my designs i give clothes a story to tell. The stories goes beyond trends, and uses fashion to create a visualization of different worlds. The world is made wearable, so the body tells my story through the applied shapes, textures and details.
My designs are powered by my love for contrast. The relationship between the simple and the complex, between minimalism and playfulness, creates a living balance in my designs.
I do conceptual design where I aim to create unexpected silhouettes and details in the materials and sewing techniques. My process is driven by intuition and experimental work directly in different materials. I combine sketching in 3d collages with draping in different scales, sewing samples and technical pattern cutting.
