“I want my garment to be a fascinating visual experience as much as a usable. I want them to build a desire, continuously expand and to surprise the beholder.”- Helena

Each of these intricately smocked and hand manipulated garments are all the works of the talented Swedish designer Helena Hörstedt. I fell in love with her garments as soon as I set eyes on them. she is definitely another insanely creative designer to come from Beckmans School of design which also gave us the likes of the knitwear extraordinaire Sandra Backlund.
This particular collection of outfits is entitled “Broken Shadow”, absolutely all of her collections are made up of Black. Her design signature is very much architectural and structured silhouettes made using a variety of hand smocking techniques.
