Susanne Roti recently graduated from Oslo National Academy of the Arts and was selected as one of few honoured students to participate in Designers’ Nest during Copenhagen Fashion Week. Before she decided to go into fashion she studied art history at the University of Bergen. This inspired her to utilize elements of the past to create something new. Historical references are an important feature of her design, which draws on the 1920`s surreal art, iconic garments and menswear classics. Drawing has always been a passion to her, and is an essential part of her design as her precisely hand-drawn illustrations are printed digitally on textiles. The works appear poetic and have an androgynous expression. Currently she is working on a follow-up collection. In addition she is working as a freelance illustrator.
