My name is Annie Sviridova and I am a textile design photo-156student at Chelsea College of Arts (UAL), London. I was born in Moscow, Russia, but have lived in New York for 4 months and now settled down in London.What I love about textile design is the ability to control and come up something new from scratch. It is like creating a whole new world from nothing. Even though I specialise in knitwear, I do not like to limit myself. That is why apart from creating materials I also enjoy sewing, painting and analogue photography. I do not like simple tasks, therefore in my projects I am usually inspired by something challenging and difficult to visualise like wind, time or sleep. I also pay great attention to colours as I believe that they have a way to translate mood and emotions.

My work represents me not only as a designer, but also as a person. Have a look at my recent projects and you will know me a little better. And don’t hesitate if you have any questions or want to contact me.
