A Dutch fashion designer based in Rotterdam.
She studied at ARTEZ/HKA Arnhem The Netherlands, where she graduated as a Bachelor in Fashion Design in 2006. In 2005 she did an internship at the company of Alexander McQueen in London, where her interests in High fashion developed. In 2007 she started her own High fashion/couture label, where she designs and creates individualistic, sculptural, progressive, hand-crafted fashion collections, accessories and illustrations.
The designs of her (small) spherical collections are all handcrafted, unique, high fashion pieces, designed with the future in mind, made by her only. Her work has many manual details and is also very recognisable by her surreal hand-drawn illustrations. Imagination, electronic music, progressiveness and individuality are a big source of inspiration for her. Especially music/sounds are an important factor in creating her work and became more important because of the environment she now works in. A house with studio's where music composers create amazing sounds like jungle/breakcore and ambient, so it becomes almost a melancholic place to work.
Next to showing her pieces on the runway, for her the ultimate exhibition place, she is very much focused combining fashion with technology. Because of her interest in the time consuming manual way of creating fashion and designs her pieces with a progressive mind, technology connects very well within her work. The technical and music parts she always does in collaboration with other great artists.
