Designer Lindsay Degen began creating her quirky knits at the age of three, when her grandmother gave her a set of knitting needles and taught her how to stitch. In pursuit of mastering her skill set, Lindsay attended the Rhode Island School of Design as well as Central Saint Martins in London. After graduating, Degen moved to New York City to create her crafty, concept-based collections under the name DEGEN. DEGEN has won the coveted Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation award as well as being listed as one of Forbes Magazine’s 30 Under 30, marking her as an artist to watch—one who is constantly cultivating excitement through her concept-based craft-fine art. In addition to her own work, Lindsay has worked to create knits for many other designers, including Tommy Hilfiger, EDUN, Tania Taylor, Misha and Puff, and VPL, and teaches classes at Parsons School of Design, Pratt Institute, and the Rhode Island School of Design. Lindsay currently resides in Brooklyn, where all of her pieces are conceptualized and brought to life.
