Hi! No, my family hasn’t found any relation to Theodore Kittelsen. I admire his work though :) My grandfather was a painter, but his name was Henry Kittelsen :)

Last week I went to an “art exhibition ” at my sons Kindergarden and that reminded me of a collection I designed last year that took inspiration from children’s drawings for prints, and the clothes of elderly for garment shapes. Here is the moodboard, the prints, patterns and fashion illustrations will be posted as design boards here now in during the next couple of days. :)

I går bestemte vi oss for å ha “fargerik fredag” i dag, så nå har jeg tatt i bruk den guke jakken fra avslutningskolleksjonen min for første gang! (Yesterday we decided that today was going to be “colourful Friday” so today I’m wearing the #yellow #jacket from my final #collection for the first time. #fashion #outerwear #coat

Here is the yellow jacket from my final collection at university. I really enjoyed making this jacket and had a lot of fun with the subtle details in the textiles as you can see from these closeups. I’m really pleased with the yellow that I dyed this fabric to as well, not to bright, not to subtle, it’s just the way I wanted it. It has a bit of all colours in it really, to get the shade I wanted. I’m also really pleased with how the yellow matches the yellow that is coming through in some of the leaves in the print on the dress :)

While you’re waiting for some real news have a look at some more of my clothes from my final collection at uni! In the midst of New Designers, job applications and interviews and moving to a different country I never got around to posting these!

This dress is quite simple compared to many of the other clothes I made, I made it after my hand in, as an addition before our fashion show. The print is a photograph I took up by my grandmothers cabin in a little lake where we used to swim when we were kids. The front is crepe du chine silk satin, and the back is a light 10% wool suiting. I will show more pictures of the yellow jacket later :)

I received my very first labels today! These are just samples, but the final ones will be very similar :) #fashion #labels #fashionlabels #graduate #fashiongraduate #graduatedesigner #logo #fashionlogo #evahk #norwegiandesign

I have some exciting projects going on that I can’t wait to share with you, but it’s not quite time for that yet. But here’s a prototype of a little coin purse! I am planning on making some more of these soon. I don’t like wasting fabric, and especially not when it’s fabric I have printed myself, so I decided that making stuff like this is a good way of using some of my left overs from bigger projects :) I still need to work a bit on this coin purse but stay tuned, I’m planning on doing some give aways with items like this soon!

I am finally going to #sew something out of this #fabric with the #print I designed as a part of my #final #collection, but never used in any of the final garments. Can’t wait to see this as #clothing and not just a piece of fabric. #fashiondesign #textiledesign #fashiongraduate
