Kirsten Johnstone | Assemblage
When you think of elegant, sophisticated and modern knitwear designs, Australian designer Kirsten Johnstone leaps to mind. Her designs are adored worldwide as much for their sublime silhouettes as the delight in their construction.
Kirsten loves to explore her modern aesthetic across a range of design disciplines whilst practising as an Architect and knitwear designer. She has an eye for flattering forms that are deceptively simple with a stunning attention to detail. Her garments have a distinctive urban edge yet remain elegantly timeless. Is it any wonder her design skills are in high demand.
She self-publishes her sophisticated knitwear designs predominantly for women under the Assemblage label. She has designed knitwear for numerous international companies, including Amirisu (Japan), Blue Sky Alpacas (USA), Brooklyn Tweed (USA), Quince + Co (USA) and Shibui Knits (USA).
Kirsten lives in Melbourne with her gorgeous family and loves coffee, modern architecture, natural fibers, the Australian landscape, travelling and salted caramel gelato. And knitting. Always knitting. It's no wonder we love her.
We're thrilled to welcome Kirsten to Skein Sisters for a fun (long) weekend of workshops and trunk show. From Friday 22 June through to Sunday 24 June you're bound to find a class that will add new skills to your knitting knowledge. Join us Friday evening from 6.30pm for a chance to meet and chat with Kirsten, try on some of her amazing designs all whilst enjoying a glass of bubbly! For details and to book, see below.
