Time: 2014-11-25, 12:00 — 13:00
Location: Vestindien B and C
Event Type: Seminar

Steinunn Sigurdardóttir will during the lunch lecture at the School of Textiles in Borås share her experiences and journey as a fashion designer and entrepreneur. She will talk about what drives and inspires her and what it takes to build your own brand in the global fashion market.

Steinunn Sigurdardóttir graduated from the Parsons School of Design in New York in 1986. She was soon discovered by the major fashion brands. She has worked for Polo/Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Tom Ford and Gucci. But she wanted to follow her own design vision and passion for textile materials and especially knitting. It has been a bumpy journey on the international fashion scene, but with many successful collections and prices. One of the prices awarded to Steinunn was Torsten and Wanja Söderberg Prize, which she received in 2008 in Gothenburg.

The lunch seminar is in English and is free but you need to register. Register by sending an e-mail to info@adasweden.se at the latest Thursday November 20.

The lunch seminars this autumn and during spring 2015 are organized in collaboration between ADA, HDK, Business & Designlab and The Swedish School of Textiles, University of Borås. The aim of the seminars is to enable new meetings across departmental boarders.
