Joanna Vikström started study fashion during a exchange year in USA. From that, she went on to study “Fashion-ology” at Stockholm university, which led to an increased interest in what fashion and textiles can communicate. She then attended Nyckelviksskolan where she studied textile art, before applying to The Swedish School of Textiles.
During her education the goal has been to question and explore the possibility to manipulate and re create traditional textile methods and expression. With her work she wants to open up for discussions and put textiles in new unexpected contexts, to claim there right to exist at as any other art form.
