Originally hailing from Frankfurt Paula lives and works in London. A graduate of MA RCA Paula Knorr shortly won the ITS Fashion Award in July 2015 in Trieste Italy.
For her second collection COLLAGE OF HERSELF Paula continues her exploration of understanding womanhood. Reviewing the conversations and interviews she did with inspiring women to start her last collection, she now carefully selects moments of confidence and power in their answers to begin her design process. Her new collection is a complex collage of attributes which create an intense and powerful picture of femininity. Her goal, to create a fitting identity for a woman who feels balanced in her strength and vulnerability.
Similar to in HER WET SKIN expressive fabric choices are important to visualize her inspiration. This time materials like silver metal mesh and soft washed leathers, liquid silk velvets and stiff iridescent lamés are creating strong emotional contrasts.
