Heidi Ackerman is a Canadian designer who takes the motif of futurism beyond universal boundaries. The Toronto-based artist holds a heavy focus on highly architectural pieces. Her most recent collection 'Construct This' combines eco materials and bold geometric structuring in wild accessories.

The pieces sit like sculptures on the wearer, with a swan-like refined elegance. Memorable pieces include a curved head piece, resembling a futuristic robot fin and a layered sheet metal necklace, which reminds of the head armor of medieval knights.

Heidi Ackerman is a graduate of Ryerson University in Toronto, Ontario. Her skillful eye for architectural strength combines with otherworldly, often bizarre designs to create fabulous sculptural pieces. Her style is bold and brave, taking on the world with a bossy, unapologetic attitude. Her work can be purchased at Thieves in Toronto, or rented from LʼArmoire Du Styliste in NYC.
