Faustine Steinmetz’s new visuals
It doesn’t feel right calling Faustine Steinmetz a designer – in some ways, she’s more like a couturier. Not because her creations resemble evening gowns in any way, shape or form, but because of the sheer volume of time and artisanal techniques that go into each piece. Visit her North London studio and it feels like an atelier, complete with various apparatus that she and her team use to spin, dye and weave her fabrics – all by hand.
This March, Steinmetz showcased her AW16 collection at a presentation at London’s Tate Britain – an event which saw models pose from within the confines of large white boxes, dressed in soft, fluffy garments and hard, metallic ones that felt as modern and sculptural as the Hepworths and Moores housed elsewhere in the gallery. via Dazed
