When I applied for the TR Master course of Shingo Sato in 2013 I did not know it would bring me lots of TR friends from all around the world. It has been an amazing journey to get to know both the japanese pattern techniques which Shingo Sato teaches, while ate the same time getting to know so many fashion designers from different countries.
Last week I visited my youngest daughter, who lives in Copenhagen to finish her Master studies in Global Health. Being in Copenhagen gave me the opportunity to meet one of the other ‘classmates’ of the course of Shingo, Jan Greve Steinrust. He teaches fashion design to young people who do not know yet what to do with their lives. He inspires them by teaching them the whole proces of designing, making and showing fashion.
Obviously Jan doesn’t like ‘boring’, so his whole atelier/classroom is filled with special and intriguing designs, like what you see here:
And he displays his TR designs all around the place. Really wonderful to see!
Fashion is something that can really inspire people. Give them the opportunity to express themselves and create beauty around them. See what Jan has to say about what makes him enjoy his job so much:
Thanks for sharing this with me Jan. It is really great to see what other designers do with what has been taught by Shingo Sato and to meet them personally. I wonder who will be next!
