I am an Amsterdam based freelance designer, born in 1972 in Ede, the Netherlands. Graduated in 1999 from the fashion Design Academie ARTEZ in Arnhem.
Shortly after graduation I started as a women's wear designer at high end fashion label The People of the Labyrinths. All of their collections are made by hand and incompany. There I developed a huge love for texture, unique materials, craftsmanship and special personal items.
Since 2003 I have been working as an independent allround fashion designer: I design women, men & kids collections, I make tech packs, colourcards, moodboards, collectionbooks and graphics.
I worked with several Companies such as:
Tumble 'n dry, Noppies, Shiwi, Lee Jeans, Gaastra, Björn Borg, Sissy Boy,
I designed a lot of sportswear (Tennis, workout- and runcollections,) as well as denim related and lifestyle collections, accessories and outerwear.
