Designer Profile

Name: Anika Cook
Location: Melbourne, Australia
Design Style: Vintage Collage

I’m a textile designer, illustrator, collagist and bagel enthusiast.

I was the founder and designer of fashion label The Gently Unfurling Sneak, which closed in 2018 after thirteen years in Melbourne and had a particular focus on intricate prints and brilliant colour.

I’m influenced by the Surrealists and Dadaists, and have a reasonably serious obsession with Victorian era lithographs.

My prints are detailed, colourful and a little bit strange.
