Admirer of National Geographic magazine and nostalgic for legendary designers like Frank Lloyd Wright, Wan de Rohe and Paul Virilio, Jessica Trosman takes distance from the classic methodology of a fashion and textile designer. She walks through the silhouette taking scientific decisions and developing each piece like an architectural process where parts are apparently not sewn but become ensemble. While doing so, she reveals shapes that flow along the body as if they were predestined. Her factory and studio settled next to a football stadium resembles a power plant, a school laboratory and a car repair service. It is continuously filled with unexpected surprises. Amazing textile developments.
The collections are always a natural result of her work. The aesthetic is a consequence of how the experiences, the decisions and the development of fabrics end up behaving.
In 2011 she collaborated with Rick Owens in developing some textiles (leather).
