Dovile Gusevaite

Dovile Gusevaite's textiles and fashion are unusual, challenging and strange and so of course I love them right down to the hairy socks.
Her degree collection for Gray's School of Art was entitled 'In search of Forgotten Identity and Place'

"Today there is a district known as Aukstieji Sanciai (Higher Sanciai) in the city of Kaunas, Lithuania. Aukstieji Sanciai is a very central district that is situated alone on the hill between forests and parks, beside the river Nemuna. USSR occupation for nearly 50 years and the economic situation, the government and EU financing, all shape the daily life of the local community of this forgotten district. This place is unique, because there is a feeling of natural evolution and cultural growth from Europe. This project focuses on the individuality of the people of this community." Dovile Gusevaite
