My name is Christina Leube, I’m 28 years old and I graduated from Beckmans College of Design in Stockholm, Sweden 2021. I am applying for The Designer's Nest 2022 with my graduate collection which I am very proud of.
I grew up in an artistic home in Malmo where colours, shapes and p
rints have always been present. Organic shapes and mysticism is something I like to incorporate in my design of digital print since people can interpret in their own way and use their imagination. My design aesthetics is a contrast between raugh and soft materials. Often a kind of dark romance where colours and prints usually are recurring
elements. I strive to challenge peoples thoughts by using a deeper meaning in my design.
I am fast and passionate, with a keen eye for detail. The vision is my motivation and I always strive to come up with the best result through experimenting. In my latest collection; Between two worlds, I chose to work carefully with proportions, details and colours to find the right balance and expression. I sketched in Adobe Illustrator and by hand, I also sewed several toiles. I believe that every step of the process is important from designing, material choice to a very strong and careful sewing. For visual aspects, but most important for sustainability.
