Prisca Vilsbol is a Copenhagen-based designer working primarily in fashion. With her company Vilsbol de Arce, she created strong, sculptural and handcrafted collections, worn by the likes of Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Peaches and more. Her background as a master pattern-cutter, combined with her interest in using innovative materials and 3D modelling to enhance the wearable experience, brought her to the Autodesk Pier 9 residency, where she experimented with biomaterials, CNC fabrication and programmable textiles. Whether working with textiles, clothing, wearables or mycelium, her fusionist approach to the technical, theoretic and aesthetic challenges of the medium at hand lead to poetic and futuristic translations of complex processes.
