Nikoline Liv Andersen’s Sculptural Fashion Designs

At the intersection of fashion and sculpture you’ll find the wearable artwork of Copenhagen-based artist Nikoline Liv Andersen. “My work is expressive, living in the borderline between fashion and art with a big focus on textiles, textures and delicate details” Anderson said, describing her work. Many of Andersen’s designs challenge the purpose of ordinary materials, using them to create intricate works of art.

“I love changing the look of industrial materials that you normally don’t use in clothes into something organic. That can for instance, be plastic drinking straws, nails or rivets.” She said.

Anderson’s mixed media pieces take a variety of forms, as she creates pieces that seem to have both futuristic and archaic elements. Many of the pieces alternate between tones as well. Some are dazzling with eye catching color, while others are more gothic and somber.
