In the summer of 2020, Marabouparken presents a large retrospective exhibition with works by Wanja Djanaieff – one of Sweden’s most influential textile designers. Djanaieff has been Head of Design at NK Design Group and Strömma Sweden, among others.

Her work became known to a wide audience when she designed clothes for the Swedish Olympic squad in Munich in 1972. The clothes, adorned with a pattern of yellow crowns on a blue background, also went on sale at NK and became a bestseller.

She has also worked as a scenographer, costume designer, professor and project manager. The exhibition at Marabouparken shows sketches, clothes and the iconic patterns that have come to be style-forming for an entire era.
