Ninna Berger I

"I like to communicate that you can always do things differently, that you can create your own work, nothing wrong with being an anarchist from time to time, we don’t always have to follow the crowd. To be stubborn is important and to not give up as the easy way out is not always the right way out. Don’t run past the things you feel is important. Don’t stress about things that don’t matter, and try to do small every day things that you feel good about!" Ninna Berger

Ninna Berger's work transcends the boundaries of fashion, textiles, art and craft. These garments are from her work 'Reconstructional Clothing' which is an ongoing genesis of work from her MA at Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm investigating how it is possible to reuse and repurpose discarded design and material, from the grave of fashion and upcycle it back into the fashion system.

"There is always the question on how much recycling really saves energy and resources and if it is a green wash or a true sustainable evolution that we strive for. Working with recycling fabric from discarded clothing is a very time consuming activity and it is very tricky to do in a larger scale. I think recycling both on a domestic level and in the industry is an important and interesting way of working with textile. Ninna Berger
