Juliana Sissons knitwear at V&A

Juliana Sissons was Fashion Designer in Residence at the V&A from July - December 2010. She was granted special access to the Museum's Medieval & Renaissance collection for study, research and inspiration.
Juliana studied Fashion and Textile with Business Studies at the University of Brighton, gaining an Outstanding Creative Achievement Award and International Student Knitted Textile Award (2003).
As a freelance knitwear designer and pattern cutter, Juliana's clients have included Alexander McQueen, Louis Vitton, Shelley Fox, Joe Caseley Hayford, Koji Tatsuno, Anthony and Alison, Hewitts of Savile Row, the BBC and the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Fashion and Armour 
This collection of experimental swatches by Juliana Sissons takes inspiration from the bold, figure-distorting shapes and rich ornamentation of 16th-century armour found in the V&A collection.
