A passion for colours, materials and quality handiwork is the basis for Marianne's graduate collection from Design School Kolding.
The heart of Marianne's graduate project from Design School Kolding in 2018 was a collection of spectacular knitwear designs that received much attention and acclaim.
Her graduate collection expands the space between art and homecrafts in a series of four knitwear designs.
In her graduate collection, Marianne chose to create unique, uncompromising haute-couture designs, where she held nothing back in her use of techniques, materials and cut.
She then simplified the design of these haute-couture designs to make them suitable as knitting kits for Kit Couture.
The transformation of Marianne's graduate collection into a knitwear range for Kit Couture gives everyone the opportunity to work with new techniques and use yarns in an innovative way in their hand-knitting.
The three styles in the collection are: Enø, Bogø and Gavnø, each with their own unique expression and elegant details.
Marianne has a particular talent for combining different materials.
