London based designer Bea Brücker is currently studying Fashion Design with a focus on Biowear and new technologies at the prestigious Royal College of Art. She was born in Germany and graduated with a biodesigned collection from Hamburg University of Applied Sciences in 2018. In 2016 she took an exchange semester at California State University Long Beach. After her graduation she was part of the Youth Fashion Summit in Copenhagen, a two-year sustainability programme launched by the UN Global Compact, the Copenhagen Fashion Summit and the Global Fashion Agenda. Its aim is to create a framework for the industry that can achieve the SDGs. Her work has been shown at Berlin Fashion Week 2019, Neo Fashion x Best Graduates and several exhibitions.
BIOWEAR x NEW TECHNOLOGIES
We need a new, liberating, environmental-friendly design practice. NOW.
What might a future look like where we live in partnership with nature instead of exploiting it? How can new technologies and Biodesign help us turn away from capitalism and pave the way for new ways of making, working and living together in social communities?
Bea Brückers work brings together the natural with the digital world. Her work combines working with living organisms, computing and 3d printing, in which she sees the potential for a change in the fashion industry, a BioRevolution towards an environmentally friendly and ethical system.
Using mathematically generated patterns and self-developed bio leather, a new design practice is being built. Through her work, she examines how Bio Fashion can be used as a political intervention by questioning current power structures and social and technological developments.
Designing with living organisms changes not only the aesthetics of her designs but the entire working process: The sewing machine is complemented by the petri dish.
