Ania Zoltkowski is a recent graduate of the London College of Fashion’s MA Fashion Futures program.
Her current practice revolves around the intersection of fashion and textile design with spirituality, health and wellness, Nature, ancient and Indigenous wisdom, resilience and craft. Her work challenges contemporary design and consumption systems, as she proposes a design for sustainability as founded upon a connection to our spiritual selves, one another and to the Environment.
Ania’s own design practice also includes translating some of these theoretical ideas into visual manifestations through illustration, garment making, embroideries, and other creative processes.
Prior to her MA studies, Ania ran the renowned Florence Deschamps agency and showroom in Paris, and has worked in design and manufacturing for brands in Australia and the UK. For several years, Ania produced her own ethical womenswear brand, creating minimal-waste garments from recycled plastic in collaboration with a women’s social enterprise in India.
Ania is currently co-creating Sustainability 5.0 – an online space for designers and creatives to upgrade their sustainability blueprint, through connecting around concepts of spirituality, ancient wisdom, Nature, community and self-care.
