Join us on March 5th to meet Luca Kemkes, the designer behind our latest exhibition 'A Bed Collection'.
The exhibition is a showcase of streetwear pieces made entirely out of repurposed bedding. Kemkes will introduce the collection, providing some insights into her design process, and her challenge to the streetwear industry in particular to look past trends and think outside the box with materials and construction.
Having worked previously as a menswear designer at Calvin Klein, Kemkes' own streetwear collection makes use of bedding sourced from secondhand shops and online marketplaces. The design process is led by the variety of textures and details in each piece of material – showcasing intricate pattern making and patchwork techniques in creating a unique garment from every bit of fabric.
"Sometimes people see sustainability as difficult. But with this collection I want to show how to use sustainable ways of creating fashion to make truly unique and more beautiful items than are possible in conventional ways."
