Faseeh Saleem is currently enrolled as a doctoral student at the Swedish School of Textiles, University of Borås, Sweden since Oct 2019. He is conducting his artistic research with a specialization in fashion and textile design. He is a designer, artist, researcher, and academic who has been exploring various perspectives of Art & Design in different contexts. He graduated with a BA in Textile Design from Beaconhouse National University (BNU), Lahore, Pakistan. This further encouraged him to explore his creative potential in both fields of textile and fashion. He later completed his MFA in fashion and textile design with a specialization in textile design at the Swedish School of Textiles, University of Borås, Sweden.
His work so far has been more about figuring out individual artistic skills, making constant decisions, exploring new mediums, techniques, and traditional practices by translating his thoughts into creative expressions. His works have been exhibited both nationally and internationally, in Lahore, Islamabad, Karachi, New Dehli, Dubai, Paris, Hong Kong, Tallin, Ukraine, Stockholm, and Borås. His current research explores the aesthetics of the body and its notions in fashion and textile development. The results of the explorations are alternative methods for understanding the body as a central variable in fashion and textile design practices. The body alternatives provide freedom in design thinking and develop idiosyncratic design methods for fashion design.
