Conny Groenewegen is a young up and coming talent who won the Dutch Fashion award in 2011. Her feminine, sensual clothing crosses the border between fashion and art, and plays with strong contrasts like open versus closed, or past versus present.
Groenewegen specializes in knitwear, using a computerized knitting machine that enables her to combine the qualities of different materials in one single piece of fabric.
Thorough research is key to Groenewegens work and frequenting the textile lab in Tilburg enables her to take all the time she needs to find new ways of using the latest technologies. The innovations she comes up with are accessible to other designers who are free to use them in different ways.
