Philip Welp - Winner from the 4th Semester

Faunus

In the short project Faunus I was interested in connecting a hoodie with nature from my place of residence. To do this, I first buried an old hoodie in potting soil for a day. This experimental approach helped me understand how the color and texture of the fabric changed. To mimic the grasses and mosses of the Grönauerheide, I felted thin structures of wool onto the sweater. However, to make the project more commercial and wearable, I replaced the earth with a foam paste in the following, which is more suited to the demands of everyday life. In addition, I used a thick, roughened, wool fabric for the hoodie and then reworked it by hand with felt wool.

Titia Grefe - Watch your eyes!

I am walking down the street und feel his eyes on me. Again, a man who is looking too long, staring at me. I am walking faster und suddenly have the wish to wear something different, not the revealing dress that I put on and that made me feel so good just moments ago. I am angry, angry about the man and angry that I cannot feel completely free in what I am wearing. My hoodie represents that feeling that I and so many other women have every day. With its adjustable strings, it gives the option to show your body as freely as you want. To celebrate yourself and to set your own boundaries. The hoodie shows vulnerability, the need for protection, but also the anger and resilience against hiding yourself and being seen as an object. It is the expression of the wish to just be completely free as a woman.

Tim Keuschnig - Rethinking life, rethinking purpose

This hoodie was a result of various draping exercises. By rethinking the idea of a hoodie and its purpose as a clothing item I ended up with a new variation, a brand-new life and purpose of the hoodie. By turning everything upside down, the Hoodie becomes a new clothing item while mostly staying as a hoodie itself. The transformation is quite easy, by stepping into the holes of the hood, going into the sleeves from outside, tucking you’re head into the hole at the hem and clipping the tapes at you’re back, you have a whole new piece.

Minji Park - test teeth

I upcycled the drafts, including both techniques and the materials, that went on to create my main project. I decided to sell the effort and the process that went through instead of the main project itself. I based the construction out of the black hoodie to make the pattern for my main project. The sleeve was from the very first draft, where I had to choose between two neoprene fabrics and test out the pattern that I roughly created. The technique used for the squiggly edges will be moreover incorporated into the main project. The embroideries and writings on the hoodie were incorporated to accentuate the imperfections of the process.

Andreas Soyka - Unisex Sweatshirt Printed Aged Praha Drinking Team Prague I Love Beer

Often, when I talk with people about my Czech roots, they associate way different things than I do. I only came in contact with the Czech culture through my mother and my grandparents. Thats why I manly connect more childish and naiv stuff with the country, such as „Kretk“ (The little mole“) or „Pan Tau“. Thats what I grew up with. Prague for me, is not the big party city that it is to most of my friends. It’s the place I strolled around as a kid while munching on some „Trdelnik“. In this hoodie - both worlds are combined.
