Work in Progress

Bart Hess

Bart Hess (1984) explores several fields combining material studies, animation and photography in a surrealist manner. With his fascination for the human body and the manipulation of it, Hess pushes the boundaries of the textile design profession: his designs transcend the craft, as Hess chooses to extend them via other media, such as film, photography and animation.

With his work Hess has obtained an independent position in the world of fashion design and art.

His list of international collaborations include prestigious names such as Lady Gaga, Lucy McRae, Nick Knight and most recently Mugler.

During his lecture Work in Progress” Hess will talk about his work and distinctive design process, sharing his fascinations and work experiences throughout the years.
