Caroline Lange

After a few years of exile by ostracism, knits are coming out of the closet stronger than ever. High-end companies like Louis Vuitton are hiring artisans like Sandra Buckland to turn their knits into works of art.
That is the case of Caroline Lange, a crochet designer based in Brazil, whose ability with crafts allowes her to create amazing pieces. When I found her blog, I was so excited, I decided to prepare a small interview.
Allure- When and why did you start knitting?

Caroline Lange-I started crocheting when I was a little girl, my grandmother taught me. I loved to go to her house so I could learn some more.

A- Was the start very difficult?

C.L.-The start was fun, I was a kid having fun with my grandmother! I started weaving as an adult and that was not so easy, but is was fun too!

A- Do you commercialize your designs or is it just a hobby?


C.L.-It started as a hobby, but my friends started to order things from me, then was the friends of my friends and now I sell my work in Brazil and other countries as well.

A-What garment are you most proud of?

C.L.-It is a beach dress I made for a friend, so pretty and feminine. It takes a long time to make, that was the only one I`ve made and I have to make one for me too.

A- And finally, what would you recommend to someone who is starting now in this industry?

C.L.-I recommend a lot of research and the best model for your work is yourself, I wear o lot of my work and that`s how I started selling.






















Thanks to Caroline for being so supportive with this interview, and to my friend of why fashion? for helping me to formulate the questions.
