Prisca Vilsbøl

Visiting Faculty

Prisca Vilsbol is a Copenhagen-based design researcher and consultant working primarily in fashion. With her former company Vilsbol de Arce, she created strong, sculptural and handcrafted collections, worn by the likes of Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Peaches and more. Her background as a master pattern-cutter, combined with her interest in using innovative materials and 3D modelling to enhance the wearable experience, brought her to the Autodesk Pier 9 residency, where she experimented with biomaterials, CNC fabrication and programmable textiles. Now armed with an extensive knowledge and network in the fields of new materials and circular economy, she has made it her mission to accelerate the implementation of sustainable and innovative processes in the field of product development. Whether working with textiles, clothing, wearables or mycelium, her fusionist approach to the technical, theoretic and aesthetic challenges of the medium at hand lead to poetic and futuristic translations of complex processes.
