Emerging Designer: Jantine Van Peski

"Design, for me, is the challenge of translating things that inspire me into something new and personal."
"The Wires 10.0 collection started when I found these amazing books about old 70s textile objects. They are very old fashioned but rich in colour, shape and technique."
"I modelled all the main pieces out of cord and yarn using just the basic knot of the macrame technique."
"The material and technique are the starting point and from there on I sketch and try things out."
"The atmosphere is something that builds itself along the way by choosing and mixing colours and shapes."
"My biggest inspiration source in general is PJ Harvey. I always connect my work to her music in a way."

Jantine van Peski studied at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute before attending the Fashion Department of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp, where she graduated in 2011 from a master (MA) degree with the stunning ‘WIRES 10.0’. Her work focuses on silhouette and craftsmanship and is marked by an innovative use of material. Here, Bullett gets a close-up look at Jantine’s process with WIRES 10.0.
