ABOUT

“If it isn’t functional it isn’t beautiful”
- Charles Eames

Functionality is the focus of my creativity, which is characterized by combining technical detail and elaborate workmanship. Besides having a functional purpose, I also use details to support the shape of the garment and visual expression.

I have a structured and analytical approach towards the design process, but I use my intuition when creating modern and comfortable menswear, which focus on details and fabric combinations.

Three words that describe me: Enthusiastic, organized and goal oriented.
