SWEDISH FASHIONExploring a New Identity

Exploring a New Identity

Exhibition Outline
Swedish fashion has traditionally strongly inclined toward functionality and simplicity of design. In recent years, however, experimental Swedish designers who display strong individuality, unfettered by traditional values, have successively come to the fore and attracted attention from the international fashion world. This exhibition introduces thirteen young fashion designers who have made their debut since 2000. These include Sandra Backlund, who is known for knitted dresses of bold sculptural design, and Ann-Sofie Back, who often challenges stereotypes and transforms original functions of clothes, for example turning shirts into skirts.
