The sweater I designed during the Luxury Craft Workshop in partnership with Parsons and the Luxury Education Foundation has been produced by Loro Piana's knitwear team, and is now on display until May 22nd as a part of the Parsons Festival !
Selected as one of four students invited to travel to Loro Piana's Northern Italy woven and knitwear factories, I toured their facilities and learned all about their production process (from sheep/goat/vicuña - to - garment). In collaboration with Daniela Borges and Loro Piana's knitwear technicians and artisans, in a jam-packed four day workshop, we designed custom textiles and a capsule collection with the Loro Piana customer in mind.
Seeing the milling and manufacturing process first hand has profoundly effected my own design process.
