Lærke Valum’s design process is characterized by a sculptural take on clothing that examines the spatial qualities of silhouettes and scale. Her vision is to create clothes that visualize and tell universal stories and explore the potentials of space and form. She treats the space around the body as a venue for form experiments that transcend the boundaries of our common concept of the human body, challenging the ‘standardized’ body image and silhouette. For her recent collections she has developed a method that combines 3D collages with draping in different scales. Her designs incorporate a deliberate use of contrasts, and the process of striking the right balance between simple and complex, minimalism and playfulness, is a source of development and innovation in all her working processes.
