Linn Annen (b. 1976, Germany)
Linn Annen is dealing with different forms of expressions in the border between fashion and art. The basic idea of her work is to wear art on the body.
Annen creates wearable objects composed of different materials, colors and shapes. A combination of new and used materials, parts of garments, and fabrics are part of her style.
Word-robes are clothes, which become an area for the projection of designer’s thoughts. Annen wants to turn the inside out and to use the fashion surface as a medium for personal text fragments and aphorisms. A special way of handwriting done with the sewing machine is a characteristic feature of her work.
During her stay at HIAP Linn Annen is going to work with elderly people to express their needs and wishes with regards to clothing and design.
