Patternbank met Carina Sohl at the highly creative experimental zone of Maison D’Exceptions back in February 2017 at Premiere Vision and were in love with the delicate beauty of her craft, mixing nature and eco-friendly technology, Carina transforms her wild gatherings into unique botanical patterns. Carina developed her craft from combining a love of nature with the material leather, discovered on a course back in 2006. The result is beautifully detailed and intricate patterns, each unique in their fragile leaves that are captured only once, to create one-off designs. Carina has collaborated with brands like the luxury fashion house Loewe and Berluti where her designs have been used on dresses and wallets. Follow her journey here on her Instagram account and on her website here.

Frank Sorbier used just two designs and stunning visual effects to narrate a medieval French fairytale on the runway at Paris last week. The Haute Couture Autumn/Winter 2012/2013 collection retold the 17th century story, Donkeyskin, a widowed king set on marrying his own daughter, who escapes his clutches by demanding a series of impossible gowns, the colour of the sky, moon or sun. “The collection is a bridge between the past, the present and what the future could be,” explained Franc, who had teamed up with software giant intel for the high-tech side of the project.
