Anita Hirlekar

Another graduate of London's Central St Martin's, Icelandic designer Anita Hirlekar is fascinated by the traditional technique of nuno felting.

 I used hand felting technique in conjunction with print to achieve different textures. I also wanted to use the felting technique in the construction of the garment so there are no seams in the entire collection, all of the dresses are handfelted together. Along with playing artistically with the textile, I wanted the dresses to have volume and be asymmetrical so that every angle is different from each other. - Thisispaper

Inspired by paint splashing techniques, Anita's draped works of art are stunning.

  1. Oh, the metallic sleeve! She's truly a master of her craft, and an incredible artist. I'd love to try on one of her dresses. Thanks for introducing her to us, Lois!
