So I just got a quick update on Amanda's post about German designer Claudia Becker. At 21, she already has 2 years of design school under her belt as well as internships with Cassette Playa and Bless. Claudia focuses on experimenting with non-fabric materials for her pieces. She's on her way back to Hamburg to finish school, so we should be seeing her stateside around 2010. For now we will just have to suffice with her myspace page. We will be keeping tabs on this one, so check back for updates!
