#TEAMVIBS: SAY HI TO ELVIRA!
This time we are meeting Elvira, born in Denmark but based in the Netherlands, experienced #Vibsvan driver and indefatigable source of diverse ideas. Read more about her in the next part of our interview series and check out her tips for Christmas.
Hey Elvira! Tell us something more about you and your background?
My name is Elvira von Wieding and I am a 4th year bachelor student at Design Academy Eindhoven in the Netherlands where I study at the department Man & Leisure
Why Fashion Design?
Not fashion. Or not really. In my department and at my school in general I have been educated to be a multi-diciplinary designer who knows a little about a lot. I am very fascinated about the fashion industry but the reason I applied for an internship with Henrik Vibskov was because of the way he creates universes by combining fashion with art, installation and performance. For me it is super interesting what lies in between those fields and to work in between being able to cross over and combine and melt together.
How can you describe your works?
My projects are split between being very conceptual and story based and then on the other hand very image based. I like to create images with color and shape and materials but I what I really like is to build the concept and the backstory, which mean that, to me, the value in my work is the idea behind it.
Tell us a secret from the studio? We won’t tell Henrik.
What happens in the studio stays in the studio.
How do you like Copenhagen so far? Any favorite spots to recommend?
I am from outside Copenhagen originally, so to me being in Copenhagen now is like coming home. The cafee Sidecar in Nørrebro is one of my favorite places to hang out – worldclass brunch in the weekends and drinks in the evening. Next to that a must-have every week is a durum falafel from Durum Symfoni on Nørrebrogade (close to Nørrebro’s Runddel) seriously the best durum in town. Next to 5-star. Whcih is right next door and an indian kebab place.
