Designer Spotlight @Famirvoll
Norwegian-born designer Fam Irvoll graduated from Esmod International in 2005, and is another of our designers to cultivate their technique at London’s Central Saint Martins.
Since graduating in 2008, Irvoll’s signature use of bold colours and 3-Dimentional construction techniques has earned her an incredibly impressive client list - with the likes of Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Paloma Faith sporting her designs.
Irvoll cites the beautiful illustrations and cartoon-incarnations of Lewis Carrol’s “Alice in Wonderland” characters as her inspiration, and draws upon its lofty sentiment by exploring cakes, confectionery and toys in her designs, winning the attention of the media- recently being featured in Wonderland, Spindle and Black Book magazines.
Witness the wonderment first-hand with Fam’s Autumn/ Winter ’12 showing at the VFS show-space on Friday 17th at 12.30pm.
