When I received an email from Iris Ruisch ’the creative director' of Amsterdam Fashion Week I was overwhelmed.
Asking me to work on a project in collaboration with Gemeente Amsterdam to create a mini collection of three looks with five other designers.
The project was about up-cycling the leftover clothes from Kingsday. What surprised all of us was the fact that people throw away their clothes way to soon.
