Clarissa Iskandar is a Maryland based artist who identifies with Indonesian, Chinese, and American backgrounds. Currently pursuing a Fiber Art degree at the Maryland Institute College of Art, she is interested in textures, colors and patterns that exist within architectural spaces. She uses easily found materials to elevate their purpose and transform their function in order to create feminine and playful wear.

As a designer, her goal is to make the wearer feels beautiful and confident to be different. Her design involves mixing both elements of the past and present, as well as the possibilities of futuristic silhouettes. While most people separate couture/ runway fashion with practical everyday garments, she loves incorporating the classic feminine shapes found in couture garments to create more individualistic ready-to-wear look.

By working intimately with her materials, she tries to understand how they will create form and volume on the body. Her finished garments come to life from mix-matching her different sketches and spontaneous draping/ on the spot pattern changing. She believes in finding new inspiration for innovation through past mistakes and lessons.
