It is a return to the place of her youth – the solo exhibition at the Schlossmuseum Linz.
The New York-based architect Nina Hollein switched to fashion and founded the self-taught fashion label NINAHOLLEIN. Her starting point is traditional linen and utility fabrics from weaving mills in her native Upper Austria, which she transforms into extravagant garments with strict, geometric cuts. However, the designer also uses leftover fabrics and offcuts, integrating the recycling of vintage men’s suits, tulle fabrics, latex or plastic into her collections. Her versatile, often changeable creations result in extraordinary pieces between everyday wear and experimental haute couture.
Her first museum exhibition, curated by Genoveva Rückert, shows the range of Hollein’s designs – from her first dresses made from dishcloth linen to costumes made from recycled suits, delicate or sculpturally sweeping evening dresses, as well as her latest block-coloured silk dresses.
