Liselore Frowijn graduated from ArtEZ University of Fine Arts in Arnhem. Her work incorporates various references to art, music, and interpretations of historical and contemporary elements from other cultures.
By reusing or adjusting historical prints, Frowijn creates eccentric textiles, luxury laces, and embroideries. The textiles include hand-painted silks, embroidered textiles from India, and woven jacquards specially developed in Italy and at the TextielMuseum in Tilburg. Her Afropolitan collection is the outcome of a collaboration with the Dutch textile company Vlisco. Her inspiration derives from Vlisco’s archive of colourful and rich textiles and the Igbo people, the indigenous linguistic and cultural people of Southern Nigera. Afropolitan presents a new feminine identity with a strong sense of traditional yet innovative elements referencing other cultures.
