Josephine Ortega’s fabulous project for the ACE Hotel in London
Josephine works at the moment at a wall hanging for the Hotel Ace in London Shoreditch. The wall hanging is hand knotted with woollen threads, some of them hand dyed by Josephine. She has to make sure to get the correct colours for her piece of art. You can just see the first pieces of patterns but it gives a hint already of the beauty it will be.
Josephine studied in London at Central Saint Martins. Notable alumni there were for example Alexander McQueen, Christopher Kane, Stella McCartney and John Galliano. Josephine graduated last year. Since then there were already some remarkable steps in her fashion career . She designed cushion covers for the company Tom Dixon. Another exciting project was when she lived 3 days in residency at the Transport for London Museum in Covent Garden.
Josephine is since December 2016 tenant and member of the Oldknows Factory family. She loves the energy of the building.
We are very happy to have her in the building and we will keep you updated on her next career steps.
