For SS14 Trine Lindegaard ran a workshop in collaboration with the charity Fine Cell Work in one of the UK’s biggest prisons. The prisoners were taking part of the whole creative process of developing the collection. The inmates were fantastically creative and took the FREEDOM brief to heart, which resulted in their thoughts and ideas being showcased throughout the collection, with their illustrations being used as prints, bold embroidery and hidden details.
Trine Lindegaard also spent some time in Ghana developing new Kente designs together with a local family run weaving business. Together they came up with new patterns inspired by the inmates’ work on FREEDOM.
