ELISE GETTLIFFE (FRA) will take part at the exhibition GET IN THE HAZE at freiraum quartier21 INTERNATIONAL.

She breathes new, bohemian, theatrical life
into menswear, with designs that bring the
circus to the street. She infuses her work
with a strong sense of fantasy and joy,
spontaneously contrasting elements without
any inhibitions. Each season, she explores
different materials, and she loves to work
with colors and yarns.

Her many collaborations include the development of a unique weaving process in collaboration with the Tilburg Textielmuseum and participation in Walter Van Beirendonck’s eXplicit collection SS09. She is a participating artist in Pictoplasma‘s forthcoming publication Not a Toy and will take part in ARRRGH!, an exhibition at the Benaki Museum in Athens, Greece, in May 2011.
