BARBARA I GONGINI INTERNSHIP
IMAGE BY // LEA ZAAR DESIGNER @ BARBARA Í GONGÍNI
In summer 2015 I interned for the Faroes // Danish Avant Garden fashion brand, Barbara Í Gongíni . During my stay at the company, I along with the other interns, developed showpieces for the brands upcoming fashion show broadcasting SS16 collection. The showpieces where UP cycled pieces, made out of scraps from older garments from the brands collections.
Further on into my internship I also designed a knitwear collection for their upcoming AW17 collection. One of the garments that I created was approved into the brands AW16 collection and I was hired into the company as a freelance knitter. Every piece is hand made carefully, as I´ve been developing my own techniques and craftsmanship skills from an early age.
Since then I´ve developed styles, along with Barbara í Gongíni, for their SS17 an AW17 collections.
