Femke Schaap is a graduate student at the Willem de Kooning Academy. In her work as a social fashion designer, the connection between the female body and the object plays an important role.
As part of her graduation project, she investigates what happens when the connection between the female body and the object is lost. She presents her work in the form of fashion sculptures, which are exhibited in the space as isolated objects.
Characteristic of her work is her progressive view on the current fashion industry with a subtle nod to various social topics. Dynamics and craftsmanship play a major role in the creative process.
