Karine Næss is a womenswear designer presenting her first collection since graduating from Oslo National Academy of the Arts in 2016. Her work is defined by craftsmanship and attention to detail, but also her interest in exploring clothing as an embodied medium of thought. Fascinated by the language of clothing, her work aims to tell stories by looking at archetypes and women’s history, shaping the narrative by taking bits and pieces from the past for repurposing here and now.
