I had the honour to create these custom made sustainable wedding looks (and even flowers) for these lovely brides.
They wanted something nonconventional, feminine, colorful and sustainable to wear for their wedding. They also wanted to be able to wear the designs on other occasions.

Tent couture for Maybe Boozegeoisie! Maybe wanted an outfit that was wearable in multiple ways and that could be transformed. Something she could play around with. So I came up with this design made from an upcycled tent.

Drag royalty Maybe wanted something extravagant to wear with their Stephastique vest. So we came up with the idea of a crown made from fabric scraps to compliment their royalty and look very extra during their work at Huis73.
Femke asked me to design an outfit for her theatershow 'OP VOLLE KRACHT'. Femke went beachcombing to collect the materials such as fishing net I used in the design.

Tracksuits made from colorful recycled flags for urban artists to wear during the Songfestival Avrotros kick off in collaboration with Studio VOLLAERSZWART.
The tracksuits also made an appearance in the promotional videos for the Rotterdam #SWINGALONG dance challenge during the Songfestival 2021. The tracksuits were part of the Rotterdam citydressing and were on display in De Bijenkorf Rotterdam.

I got the honour to compose a suit for Milieudefensie.
The suit was part of the ‘big CEO’ character that represented all the large companies that have a big climate impact. Together with ‘Rutte’ he was seen barbecuing the earth during the Klimaatmars ’21.
We chose to use a vintage suit for this look and I made the patches using different colors of transfer foil and velt to create these sturdy patches.
The head and earth are created by another artist. I love how everything came together during the Klimaatmars ’21.

Liese was looking for a dress to wear to her brothers wedding. We decided on a pastel green fabric that would go nicely with her partners suit.
We wanted to achieve a look that would look elegant and classy. The dress is hugging her figure and has a large ruffle on the top, the length of the dress is just above the knees.
Partij voor de Dieren Noord-Holland
Partij voor de Dieren Noord-Holland politicians Ines Kostic, Jaap Hollebeek and Fabian Zoon were looking for a something special to wear during the ‘dag der begroting’. The custom made jackets represented their love for nature and the importance to stop deforestation. The jackets gave their statement an extra touch.
