Priss Niinikoski

Harvest is a collection of thoughts and processes related to the material by Priss Niinikoski. Resulting in a series of wearable objects, the work discovers the position of the maker as a creative. Niinikoski researched and questioned tradition an it’s relevance today.

“Combining the visual language of folk crafts with the non-referential minimalist art principals, I wanted to translate the sense of familiar through the abstract. Designing in companionship with the material as a tool for expression.”

After her graduation, Priss worked as a knitwear design intern at Dries van Noten. Her graduation collection landed her a spot as one of the ten finalists for the renowned Hyères competition in fashion.
