Sandra Zomer studied Fashion Design at ArtEZ Institute of the Arts in Arnhem, the Netherlands, where she successfully graduated with a bachelor degree in 2016. Her final collection ''illusive mind'' is inspired by the stimulus our senses are exposed to every day and how it effects the individual visual perception of reality. By playing with optical illusions it reveals the limits between reality and subjective perception, the composition of materials, and how they work together with the designs shape, is essential to it. As a designer Sandra Zomer is challenging herself to find new ways to create innovative textiles by using unforeseen materials and by finding new techniques to enable these textiles to strongly influence the shape of each design. The quality of craftsmanship is just as important to her in her work as is an eye for the distinctive detail.
