Domantas Smaizys: Shelter
Inspired by Islamic geometrical ceramics iconography this sculpture addresses the refugee crisis. Having been displaced into camps, they are left to illustrate what is left from their memories. The piece is fused with emotional aesthetics of current circumstances trapped in the shelter.

Julija Moroz: Escapism
Through my design process, I was inspired by the organic shape of architecture, naturalistic decorations based on local flora and general vibe of nomad spirit. The feeling of intentional detachment and distraction show a momentary reprieve from the constant warriors’ circumstances, where escapism is a chance to step away and recharge, rethink.

Marie Sloth Rousing: Inadequate Function
This project is inspired by a mini Quran which has an inadequate function in being so small that it is difficult to read – The book that does not want to be read.This concept is used in connection with a tradition trenchcoat. A coat that, by first glance, can’t be understood and analyzed how to wear, but is actually wearable.

Michala Bräuner Grønkjær: The Bath House
As a modern interpretation of the miniature-story Mihr wa Mushtari (Mihr in bath-house in Khwarazm) the garment illustrates a contrast between Danish public-pools and the decorative Hamams. A clash appears between a stiff towel with illustrations and a soft, fluid dress created of traditional tile-patterns.

Ann-Christine Vilhelmsen: Faith in Strangers
“Faith in Strangers” is a study of two Persian and Arabic textiles, where Calligraphy has inspired to develop a graphic serigraph-print in neon. Bleaching technique has given a decaying expression that imitates a 7-8th-century samite-woven textile. The shape of the look is developed from a Persian carpet, where there are still elements from the rug in the form of neon stitches.

Julie Thornberg-Thorsøe: Back•words
The meanings of written words overshadow the hidden beauty in the letters. Disguising these definitions allows the eye and the mind to perceive shapes, details and artistry that is too often neglected. Until the meanings are finally revealed backwards.
