Julie Skarland. Paris – New Delhi – Oslo

19 October 2014–1 February 2015

Museum of Decorative Arts and Design

The fashion designer Julie Skarland has spent her entire career abroad.

Her first stop was Paris, where she founded the company Julie Skarland / Princess-factory in 1991. There she presented new fashion collections each year, before opening her
own sales outlet in 1998. In 2005 she moved to New Delhi in India to produce in accordance with fair trade principles. Right from the start, knitting, recycling and deconstruction have been recurring elements of her style, which is inspired by folklore and fairy tales.

The exhibition offers a broad introduction to Skarland’s creative processes, with a focus on costumes from her Paris collections and from her years in New Delhi. Her production is further illustrated with photographs, drawings and videos.
