Garment Design

Stockholm, Sweden
Design professional who has been specializing in the fields of Sustainability, Design Thinking and Circular Economy. My main focus is to approach design holistically in order to achieve sustainable work frame, a method that secures successful completion of a project. One can identify four key points in my practice - learn from failure, be curious, try it out and collaborate.
