Victoria Wanjuhi

http://www.wanjuhi.com

My name is Victoria Wanjuhi, originally from Kenya. I received my B.F.A. in fashion design from SCAD Atlanta in 2013. After graduating, I worked in the garment industry as an assistant designer for a few years before deciding to go back and pursue an MFA in Fibers. Growing up in Kenya, I saw low-income communities recycle materials and make innovative pieces from waste. During my graduate studies, I reevaluated my relationship with making by carefully thinking about the process within the material; by using discarded and upcycled textiles. I create unique pieces by exploring abstraction, distortion, reimagining the material in various 2D and 3D forms, and design applications. This process tries to extend the material’s life-cycle instead of adding to the overburdened environment.
