Refered to as the “true poetess of clothing” by French magazine Stiletto, Marit Ilison is a multidisciplinary artist and a freelance designer working in the fields of conceptual art, fashion, costume design, site-specific installations, perceptional experiences and exhibition design. Marit Ilison mixes deep concepts with feelings and eye-catching form. For her, everything starts from a concept or a feeling. She was the Vogue TALENT 2014 and the finalist of the 29th Hyeres Fashion & Photography Festival. The phrase Longing for Sleep, the name of her collections, had been haunting her for years before the project of colourful woollen coats
came to fruition.
