Being a dropout from Highschool it is quite a journey to get to AMFI. I don’t remember that I had ambition to work in the fashion industry in my younger years. So being creative and grown up with computers I chose to try my luck at Graphic Lyceum Rotterdam becoming a graphic designer.
A four year education and starting in second year the specialization Fashion&Trends. Third year is for Internships and working at O’Neill Europe is the first step into the fashion industry. A choice I definitely do not regret.
My Internship at the heritage surfbrand O’Neill is still very valuable to me today. Working over there I decided to get deeper into the fashion industry. And it’s the reason I am at AMFI learning to be a fashion designer now.
What I love about the industry is that not a day will be ever the same because trends will always flowing in and out of society. Being able to design and making interesting choices influenced by all kind of factors, but also give it my signature, gives me the feeling to exist in this time.
I hope my portfolio gives a good representation of my capabilities and work. And if there will be questions do not hesitate to ask them!
