Modern Renaissance combines the art and innovation of the Italian Renaissance with modern industrial functionalism and computer programming.

The word “renaissance” means “rebirth”, and was an intense period of rediscovery and innovation in art and science.

We are going through a renaissance now, a rediscovery of information through the Internet, and innovation in technology.

In the knitwear pieces, a renaissance
poem, said to inspire Botticelli’s Primavera, is translated into binary code and knitted on a punchcard operated knitting machine.

The garments are ornate and luscious, as in the renaissance style, but practical and contemporary to the modern renaissance woman.
