Brief Summary

Elisabeth Boström is a Finnish born textile designer currently based in London. She is a first class graduate from the University for the Creative Arts Rochester. Elisabeth was selected to showcase her graduate collection at Graduate Fashion Week 2012 and was thereafter shortlisted for the Gala show.

Driven by the obsession of optical illusions, Elisabeth Boström's prints play on trompe l'oeil effects and optically challenging prints. All prints are aimed for fashion, and a lot of attention is paid to the female form or the cut of a garment which in turn influences the placement or engineered print. Specialised in printed textiles, designs can be traditional screenprints, digital design or a combination of both. Print collections include silk, cotton, wool, suede and leather.
