a conversation between two friends separated by one state, sharing the same passion for the art of knitwear.

knitorious is an archive for knitwear designers, knitwear students, knitwear lovers and even the knitwear curious.


Brooke Roberts

"Brooke Roberts label explores and demonstrates the link between science
and design. The collections are developed and created in Italy from the highest
technology machinery and materials.

Brooke obtained a degree in Applied Science and worked as a Radiographer
prior to studying fashion design and pattern cutting at London College of Fashion
and Central Saint Martins. She has a unique technical insight and broad knowledge
of human anatomy through her interpretation of x-rays and CT scans; this
knowledge informs and directs her textile design, cutting and construction techniques.

A visionary in the use of medical images as surface design, Brooke programs
her knitwear from x-rays and CT scans, body mapping and contouring to
achieve striking graphic effects through color and texture. With several years'
experience creating knitwear in Italy, she mixes yarns to great technical effect.
Her knitwear combines cashmere, wool, cotton, silk, techno-plastic, metallic, and
retro-reflective yarns.

Brookes SS11 collection is stocked exclusively at Browns Focus from May 2011."
