The work process of FANT is both analytical and intuitive. FANT takes the inspiration and meaning of her work from her anthropological view on how people costume and express their personality through a unique way of using and combining clothing.
After an analytical filter (where all accepted processes are reconsidered) she switches to an intuitive naive emotional and handcrafted manner. In this phase all the insights she gained are set free which then find their way through a playful and organic way of working, resulting in these multifaceted products. Even though fabrics are a second nature to her, she finds the freedom to use new materials such as clay, wood and precious metals.
Use of materials
Fant likes to work with natural and ecological materials, natural and synthetic recycled materials and vintage clothing and objects. She embraces the imperfections and wabi sabi philosophy. Sustainable developments are marked highly. Lots of attention is put in every detail as this is part of the process. Use of color varies every project, from dusty shades to brights and fluor colors; always combining contradictions to get a contemporary approach.
