Fanny Holst is a Norwegian fashion designer that is based in Paris. She graduated from Paris College of Art (former École Parsons à Paris) in May 2015 with a BFA in fashion design.
Her work is influenced by her Norwegian background with a minimalistic design aesthetic mixed with the French art of couture. These contrasting elements give her designs a modern sophistication. One of her main focuses in her designs is a strong concentration on the contrast and mix of drape and tailoring.
In addition to the love of draping in her recent collection she is focusing more on the mixture of textures with a greater research on surface treatments and finishings. Its all about the different techniques and the handcraft that goes into making every garment, having the wearer feel and see the human touch and craftsmanship in the garments.
Fanny Holst will be showcasing her collection at the Zeitgeist catwalk show on Friday 16th October.
