ART, CRAFT and STYLE bind with POETRY are the main ingredients of these two Berliner designer: LINN ANNEN and CONNIE KRAUS.
LINN ANNEN a fashion and custom designer whose work extends into the fine arts limbo. Her creations are a very personal view of how clothing and fine arts should mingle together:
Here is how Linn describes her work for CENTRAL BOOKING in New York City where her work is currently on display:
“I am dealing with different forms of expressions on the border between fashion and art. The basic idea of my work is to wear art on the body. I create so-called ”wearable objects” composed of different materials, colors and shapes. A combination of new and used materials, parts of garments, and fabrics is part of my style. “Word-robes“ are clothes, which become an area for the projection of my thoughts. I like to turn the inside out and to use the fashion surface as a medium for personal text fragments and aphorisms. A special way of handwriting done with sewing machine is characteristic feature of my work”.
CONNIE KRAUS a stone mason carver by trade applies her tactile skills creating poetic and sensual interior designer objects which go under the trademark of MOHNLICHT
