Fanny Freundner - Winner from the 6th Semester

would you love me again?

Since working in home-office every day, mostly isolated and focusing on comfort rather than on style, I binge wore all my hoodies until they started annoying me. They all looked the same: boring, slightly shabby and not suited my home-office hairstyles when wearing hoods (I mostly wore buns or ponytails).
The fine ribbed cuffs that are typical for hoodies inspired me to use knitting techniques to create a hoodie which favours wearing a long hairstyle. I aimed to create a desirable but also comfortable piece and I enjoyed the Idea of the wearers looking down their bodies, especially on the sleeves and see something exiting (While working on my computer I noticed that my attention always tend to shift on my sleeve cuffs).
The used materials were all vintage (hoodie, knitting yarns). I asked my friends and family for wool they no longer used and they collected yarns for me, I would have never chosen. However this huge range of colours enabled sheer endless combinations and patterns. For me awaking something forgotten with new energy is a really beautiful process.

Kristel Jänes - hoodigan

Soft and friendly cardigan on steroids - gives the wearer unprecedented boldness to confront any problem and/or ask any favours. Just by turning the cardigan inside out the wearer is able to hide any hesitation from their mind.

Denise Kipke - how to wear a hoodie

The arm is threaded through the armhole, the head slips through the neck hole. One leg after the other slowly slides through the tubes provided for it. The common regimentations of clothing dictate a pattern of movement for the body. Reset. The free experimentation of body and dress and the free approach to shapes and proportions, playfully create new draperies. At some points these restrict the body and at others open up space for movement. New forms emerge from the process, with new rules and freedoms for the body.

Sezgin Kivrim - The big (w(e)ave

Weaving is a traditional craftsmansship, activley performed by my Turkish family. With this project I wanted to get more insights into this technique. The fact that you can create your own fabric and even control patterns, has always been fascinating for me. As my family lives at the Turkish coast I decided to do a wave pattern in order to make a reference - not just technically - but also thematically.
