"A degree show in fashion design is often mistaken for a show of garments that are ready for sale in store, aimed at a certain market segment. However that is not the idea. The purpose of a degree work is instead to show new ideas and possibilities that may in turn be applied and adapted into commercialized ready-to-wear garments; hence the at times abstract and demonstrative character of the degree works.
At the Swedish School of Textiles, fashion is understood in its broadest sense, making room for a vast number of perspectives. And so it must be, because the challenge young designers of today face is an industry that has fashion-related products. Therefore, I put the hope in this year's degree students, to continue challenging an industry the same way that they have challenged, and thereby developed, their own education".
