LARS WEDEL // FASHION
My name is Lars Peter Tvilling Wedel Olsen and I am a fashion designer and part time graphic artist. I was born 30 minutes outside of Copenhagen, Denmark and have studied all over Denmark and abroad in the United States.
I am currently still studying and is expected to graduate in December 2019 with a Bachelors degree in Design & Business from VIA Design in Herning. I studied my 3rd Semester at Ivy League College, Cornell University, at their Fiber Science & Apparel Design program, where I studied Fashion Draping, Fashion, Beauty & Trends, Fashion Collection & Portfolio and I did an independent study with Professor Van Dyk Lewis. I intent to also take my 6th semester abroad and both times, have an internship abroad as well.
Growing up, I always had a passion for video-games and character design and my strong interest in Asian culture grew from those games. It inspired me to learn about Asian art, architecture, patterns, history and national costumes from various Asian countries. I love experiencing new and different cultures. I’ve always taken a huge interest in looking outside of my home country, Denmark, and exploring what the world has to offer. I enjoy participating in all aspects of a culture, such as customs and language.
Growing up with minimalist- and sophisticated design from Scandinavia, I grew up with a very different take on how clothes, decor and colors could be used, compared to my piers at my current school. Old school Hollywood and glamour has always had a special place in my heart . Couture gowns and evening wear creations is what I aspire to create in the future, with a mixture of my passion for Asian flavors and a dash of Nordic touches. Furthermore, I find the 1920’s Art Deco period in America to be a huge inspiration. I have always been intrigued by the symmetrical Art Deco patterns and the glamorous lifestyle associated with it.
