Saskia de Brauw Finds New Meaning as a Found-Objects Artist

Part Dutch and part Scottish, Saskia de Brauw found modeling fame early, at 16, before dropping out to attend art school in Amsterdam. Now, in her early 30s, she’s finding modeling fame again, as well as finding objects on her travels that she transforms into artwork.

The second stop of Saskia’s exhibit of found objects, The Accidental Fold, has opened at the National Museum of Scotland (as part of Edinburgh International Fashion Festival). In it, scraps of paper, pieces of plastic, and bits of thread from all corners of the world are given new life — mirroring Saskia’s own unusual, willful path.
