Academy of Art University: Fashion Design X Knitwear Design Collaboration Collection


Febri Artha Jayanti and Rebecca Dovenryd Almberg presented their Fashion Design X Knitwear Design Collaboration Collection at the Academy of Art University 2016 Graduation Fashion Show in San Francisco on May 11th, 2016.

Febri Artha Jayanti, B.F.A. Fashion Design, is from Jakarta, Indonesia. In 2013, Jayanti interned at Jakarta- based fashion retailer, Valino Donna, and worked backstage at Jakarta Fashion Week. For her collection,  Jayanti collaborated with B.F.A. Knitwear Design student Rebecca Dovenryd Almberg. Jayanti’s designs are  inspired by the burnt and ravaged artworks by American artist Valerie Hegarty. Bold, structured padded  shoulders and asymmetrical pleats evoke images of Hegarty’s scorched paintings and contorted frames. By  incorporating variations of knitwear pieces, Jayanti was able to make her structured and tailored collection  fresh and modern.

Rebecca Dovenryd Almberg, B.F.A. Knitwear Design, was born and raised in Skövde,  Sweden, the sleek minimalistic fashion sensibility synonymous with Nordic design seems to come naturally  to Almberg. Having already worked at the likes of Marville, Ralph Lauren, and Acne Studios New York City,  Almberg is well on her way to making a name for herself. Almberg’s knit designs were created in  collaboration with B.F.A. Fashion Design student Febri Artha Jayanti. The attire worn by nuns of the Catholic  institution, Daughters of Charity, in 1910 inspired the silhouettes and yokes of her collection. For Almberg,  every stitch has its own character, so she let the natural life of each stitch inspire and shape her garments.
