Hi, I’m Aniela, and Designer and Maker interested in relationships between us and objects.
Aniela is a post-disciplinary creative researcher designer and maker raised in Poland, based in London. She investigates value-adding approaches to sustainable design, and ways in which narratives can improve our ability to care for objects, for each other and the planet. Her expertise is in fashion sustainability and ethics, forecasting, consumption patterns and communication. She is a Royal Society of Arts Fellow (FRSA) and Maker in Residence at Cockpit Arts thanks to the generous support of the Radcliffe Trust. She completed MA Fashion Futures ‘20 at the London College of Fashion, UAL, where she was awarded a distinction. Aniela was trained at Vivienne Westwood and previously worked with independent designers such as Mary Benson and Charles Jeffrey. In 2018 she won the prestigious Kering Award for Sustainable Fashion. Her work was endorsed by Alexander McQueen, Centre for Sustainable Fashion, Deezen and Dutch Design Week.
Her work is concerned with values that we locate in things and ways to improve our ability to care for them, for each other and the planet.
- How can we create more meaningful, intimate, respectful and fulfilling relationships?
- How can we turn the insult of 'objectification' into a complement?

'The scarcest resource is not oil, metals, clean air, capital, labour, or technology. It is our willingness to listen to each other and learn from each other and to seek the truth rather than seek to be right'
