Artis Stamguts is a MA Fashion Design graduate of the Art Academy of Latvia. I have enriched my knowledge and experience in NABA – Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti, Italy, Milano and UDK - Universität der Künste Berlin, Germany.
I am currently a lecturer at the Art Academy of Latvia, department of Fashion Art. I am interested in uniting the things we wear with art.
For me the construction of clothes is just as important as colour, fabric and so on. It becomes a part of the design.
I want to create new solutions to classic designs. I create clothes for more than one season.
Sometimes you have to take a closer look to reveal it completely. I care for the person who wears my clothes to look interesting not only from distance, but also when you get closer, stand next to and have conversation with them. Very often I involve philosophy, which can be understood through its relationship to the clothing itself.
I make clothes with a small amount of unreality, for dreamers who are not scared to dream, who dare to be different and are not afraid of what people will say.
