Karen Korjus

Karen Korjus's 'Puzzle Fashion' collection from 'Grays School of Art' made modular style fashion made with multiple laser-cut pieces. Karen had explored multiple designs in a method of textile manipulation that resembles very complex origami.
“Some of the larger pieces are made from around 400 individual pieces, it means that you can build your own piece of clothing and continuously reinvent your wardrobe without having to buy new clothes all the time. It is particularly good for children as it gives them control over their outfits and also helps to teach them about sustainability. In the fashion industry, people are always trying to produce things as fast as they can in large quantities and for low cost. I just feel that it is wrong – it encourages people towards over consumption and creates a lot of waste.” Karen Korjus
