Ambrose Frøsaker Lunde is a Norwegian Designer who studied at the University of Edinburgh. In 2018 he created his graduate collection which was showcased in the Front Row Fashion show at the National Museum in Edinburgh. Following in June he took part in Graduate Fashion Week where the collection was placed in the top 25 Best of GFW, Gala Show.
"My collection is to showcase the essence of a scenographic, melancholic landscape, influenced by my close connection to my home on the Norwegian west coast, its shores, ocean and cold weathers. This further connected to my first memory and fascination of fashion, which was the way clothing draped down a staircase. Staircases became the inspiration for structured and geometric shapes, contrasting soft materials, further linking to the use of pinstripes.
It became clear to me that I wanted to use natural materials to reflect my affection for the surroundings I grew up in, in which way the use of elements such as wood, mother of pearl and organic fibres was crucial.
As a menswear collection it became important to use classical tailoring to reference a historical masculine silhouette and yet transform it into a draped feminine essence. With historical and fabel referencing I came to approach a silhouette of masculinity showcasing an opportunity for something theatrical, feminine, yet fashionable."
