Drawing on biology, philosophy, environmental studies, and machine learning, Søs Christine Hejselbæk is a truly interdisciplinary designer. “I’m not comfortable being just one thing,” she says, a feeling she’s had since childhood. Growing up in Aalborg, Denmark, she was always creative but also interested in science, which led her to study fashion design at the Kolding School of Design, a program which prioritizes environmental sustainability in the design process. She studied abroad at London College of Fashion for a semester, which reinforced her personal investment in fashion design. “It’s not about beautiful, fluffy things to put on a runway but what problems I can solve.” Immediately after finishing her BA, she joined the Royal College of Art with a firm resolve to think about fashion through science. Entitled Specie, her graduate project does just that.
