Oslo based designer Armando E. Santos is a textile artist in design who covers museums and art galleries just as much as catwalks. Santos works with various pleating techniques in his work and started out his lines by recycling old jeans and denim garments which he cuts into strips and artfully pleats into dresses, tops, skirts and bags. After working with denim he has moved on to other materials and techniques, always with a focus on small detail.
He is holding his third exhibition this year at Galleri Format, a renowned art gallery in Bergen. It must then be fair to say that he has made quite an extraordinary impression on the textile art and fashion world of Norway.
