About Karina Frances Edmonds : Karina Frances, is a 16 year old designer, with a vision forpoetry and change, radiated through each piece she bringsto life. Her designs mirroraseamless balance between nature and her perception of the worldshe explores and continues to traverse.Each design with significance in each detail, she ventures to endeavour thebringing of her designs from paper and poetry, to fabric and sculpture. Karina is inspired by observations of the world around her. Being down to earth and spiritual, as often seen in Karina’s designs inspired by nature; Karina wishes to ground and eliminate the superficiality and overconsumption that is prominent in the fashion industry. Through shifting society's mindset of fast fashion, she wishes to create a label that radiates her values about sustainability and the beauty of living.
STATEMENT OF ART:
Design is a language in which one can express to the world their visions. Design is art with a functional soul. I believe when art is worn one can be empowered.
Fashion is a form of expression! It can impact our mood and the way we feel about ourselves and the world around us! It can dictate how we go about our days, and it can record and reflect cultural, and personal growth. It is an international language we all share in common; with the freedom to speak and act with. It is miserly what I like to call, wearable art. A second skin which can be used as a form of change! As a designer, it is my duty to bring this art of change to life, from paper and poetry to fabric and sculpture; the aftermath is impact!
