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 Hamburg and studied BA Fashion Design at HAW Hamburg and took an exchange semester at California State University Long Beach. In 2018 and 2019, she was part of the Youth Fashion Summit in Copenhagen, a two-year sustainability programme launched by the UN Global Compact and the Global Fashion Agenda with the aim of creating a framework for the Fashion Industry to achieve the SDGs. In 2019 she showed her work at Berlin Fashion Week, Neo Fashion Best Graduates.
Bea Brückers work brings together the natural with the digital work: It is at the intersection of Bio Design and new technologies such as working with living organisms and 3D printing and computing, which creates future design practices for ethical and ecological fashion. Furthermore, 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.
