    Liz Collins is an artist and designer, recognized internationally for her use of machine knitting to create ground-breaking clothing, textiles, and 3-D installations.

    After five years as an independent designer of seasonal ready-to-wear collections in New York City, Collins returned to her alma mater, Rhode Island School of Design, as an Assistant Professor in the Textile Department. In addition to teaching, Collins currently designs knitwear under her own label, which she sells at trunk sales and select boutiques in New York and Tokyo. She also collaborates with other designers, producing signature knit pieces and collections for them. A member of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, Collins was has been cited by the New York Times as a creator of “brilliantly crafted” garments and a “designer with many industry accolades”. In the spring of 2005, a new facet of Collins’ work emerged: a series of performance-based installations called “KNITTING NATION”, that employ uniformed machine knitters to create a multi-sensory experience that examines the relationship of humans to manufacturing and the process of machine knitting. Collins is a 2006 United States Artists Target Fellow in Crafts and Traditional Arts, and received at $50,000 fellowship award for this honor.

    I love this red one here in the centre.. Is that possible with knit? I didn't know you could 'draw' --it seems like embroidery. Unfortunately she doesn't have a write-up next to her work
