SARA KICKMAYER was growing up in a small village in the mountains of south Austria. From very early on there was strong connection to nature and traditional craftsmanship. Her work is looking at design as a solution based exploration to find answers inspired by nature for the environmental crises humanity has been facing. She is combining ancient and scientific knowledge regarding materials and is transforming them through her artistic approach into form and shapes around the body, constantly looking for a symbiosis between the human made, nature and the garment itself.
