HOW DO YOU CHOOSE WHICH MODEL WEARS WHAT LOOK?

Oh so many different elements.. Height, color of her hair, or even just her presence or the way she walks..

 

WHAT DO YOU DO BACKSTAGE TO ENERGIZE MODELS FOR THE RUNWAY BEFORE EVERYONE GOES ON

Depends on the atmosphere backstage, sometimes I find a moment with them individually and we visualize where strength comes from, or we just take a few deep breaths together just before they go on. This last time everything went so well and everybody was so happy and in the moment we where just dancing to the music backstage and everyone was saying let this moment last for ever, we don’t want it to end. But I always tell every one of my models, just before they go on to keep in mind that it is their moment and not to forget to enjoy it fully.

 

WHAT NEW MODELS ARE YOU MOST EXCITED ABOUT THIS SEASON?

I am excited about a lot of my girls.. but am especially proud of a few girls that I have worked with from the very start, like Lis van Velthoven, and Noa Vermeer, amazingly beautiful girls inside and out.

 

WHAT TIME DID YOU GO TO BED THE NIGHT BEFORE YOUR SHOW?

Honestly I didn’t see my bed… But a day like that you just run on adrenaline.

 

ANY CRAZY MOMENTS LEADING UP TO THE SHOW (i.e MISSING ACCESSORY, ETC)

We had a model who was sick on the morning of the show, so we had to find somebody else on the day itself.. very stressful.

 

WHAT DID YOU DO THE NIGHT AFTER YOUR SHOW?

I had champagne with friends.. we celebrated the moment. Especially they know all the hard work and hours that’ve gone in, all the obstacles.., because they’ve seen it for 6 months.. So it is something we all feel together in that moment.

 

WHAT GOES THROUGH YOUR HEAD RIGHT BEFORE THE SHOW AND RIGHT AFTER?

Right before the show I always take a small moment for myself and wisper something like a wish for the show, for the moment,the work and for everybody in it. Like a blessing of sorts. Right after the show I don’t really think anything, just feel a big relief if all went well and a lot of emotion.. my own combined with everybody else’s that jump on you right after the show. It is like a warm tornado.

 

NOW THAT ITS ALL OVER WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF THE PAST WEEK?

The part where everybody that came backstage, from close friends, my own team till press all came to me with tears in their eyes telling me how it touched something in them and they where moved very deeply. That made me cry.. is their any bigger compliment then that you have truly touched someone with your creation…?

 

YOUR SHOW EARNED A STANDING OVATION AND BROUGHT THE PUBLIC TO TEARS. DO YOU FEEL YOU ACHIEVED THE MESSAGE YOU HAD HOPED TO CONVEY?

Yes, isn’t that the biggest honor.. a standing ovation and tears.. I am so grateful. And it is truly my goal to take people to a different state of mind, take them out of the mundane, and let them experience what I’ve experienced in the 6 Moths I create and work on a collection, fabrics, prints, stories, movie and music. I want to show my collection in that context.

 

WHAT IS NEXT NOW?

Now I am already working on my next collection, and also working towards a bigger international market. Just keep on growing, creatively, internationally and keep on telling my stories.

INTERVIEW

WHAT WAS THE MOST EXCITING PART OF AMSTERDAM FASHION WEEK?
Doing the runway wearing all those stunning designer clothes.
It’s such an excitement and a honor to be allowed to do that. Makes you feel really special and beautiful.

 

WHAT IS THE MOST EXCITING PART OF MODELING?
Having the chance to shine on the runway – and later on when all the publications come out.
You can step out of your daily routine for a while and become someone else. And I can’t wait to travel, meet new people and make new experiences.

 

WHAT’S THE MOST DIFFICULT?
You can’t really show your emotions when you’re doing the runway or while they take photos of you backstage.

 

WHAT GOES THROUGH YOUR HEAD WALKING DOWN THE RUNWAY?
I’m super excited and happy, enjoying that very special moment and knowing I’ll see my photos later on all those amazing and lovely websites. It’s surreal.

 

WHAT WENT THROUGH YOUR HEAD DURING THE FIRST SHOW YOU WALKED?
I was a little nervous of course, but was so worth it! They were the most amazing twenty seconds I’ve had in a while.
And in those twenty seconds the only two things I felt were excitement and happiness.

 

WHAT PLANS DO YOU HAVE FOR AFTER FASHION WEEK?
I’m going to work on my portfolio. Afterwards I’m hoping to go international.

 

WHICH LOOK FROM THE RUNWAY WAS YOUR FAVORITE, AND WHY?
The first outfit by the amazing Aziz Bekkaoui, that I got the honor to wear opening his show at Amsterdam Fashion Week.
It was such an awesome cool outfit and I loved the shoes.

 

WHO ARE YOUR FAVORITE DESIGNERS?
Actually I don’t have any ‘favorite’ designers, because I pay more attention to the clothing itself than the name on the label.
So I like various outfits from many different designers – but if I really had to choose I’d say Tommy Hilfiger, Jean Paul Gaultier, Oscar de la Renta, Coco Chanel, Valentino and Ralph Lauren.

 

WAS THERE ANY ROUTINE THAT YOU DID TO HELP YOU BEFORE YOU WENT ON THE RUNWAY TO PREPARE FOR THE SHOW?
To be honest with you, none in particular. Before a show I just try to stay calm and relaxed.
If I start thinking too much about it, I know it will go wrong.

 

ARE YOU WORKING ANY MORE RUNWAYS BESIDES AMSTERDAM FASHION WEEK? IF SO WHICH ONES ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO ATTENDING?
I started modeling just a few months ago and Amsterdam Fashion Week has been my first amazing experience. Got the honor to open for Aziz Bekkaoui and was booked for the beautiful show of Dorhout Mees as well. Things have gone really fast, but I’m loving it!!
Next it would be awesome to walk in Milan and Paris. Have heard from my agent there has been interest already, so I can’t wait to move onto the next step of this adventure.

 

WHEN AND WHY DID YOU START MODELING?
It all happened when I less expected it. A friend of mine who wanted to be a model asked me to take her to an Elite Model Look casting in our area last summer. Once we got there, she came up with the idea to make me sign up for it too, since I had nothing to lose anyway.
So I did and ended up in the finals. They didn’t offer me a contract, but that’s where I met Giusy de Ceglia, my current agent.
We clicked right away and it all went really fast. She met my parents and they were just as enthusiastic as I was. I signed a contract with Giusy and ever since I’ve had the most amazing model agency ever!

 

WHAT IS YOUR SKINCARE REGIME? WHAT HOLY-GRAIL PRODUCTS/METHODS DO YOU LIVE BY?
I remove my make-up with clean water. That takes all of your make-up off and it’s refreshing.
After I use a cleaning product from Lancôme and as final touch I put some night cream on my face.

 

HOW DO YOU STAY HEALTHY AND KEEP YOUR BODY IN SHAPE?
I drink a lot of water and juices and also sport often.
It’s really important to remove your make-up at the end of the day and avoid using cheap products that could irritate your skin.

 

WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR ANY STARTING OUT MODELS?
Keep your mind sharp and do not get easily nervous or carried away. If you expect too much or overestimate yourself, things will definitely go wrong. At the same time you must believe in yourself, otherwise you’ll fail. The most important thing is to be yourself and not try to change at any cost – You’re beautiful the way you are!

 

HOW HAS IT BEEN WORKING WITH GIUSY DE CEGLIA?
It’s been amazing! Giusy is such a lovely and caring person – and she always knows what’s going on. She is not just my ‘agent’ but also a true friend, because besides the modeling part she also really cares about how I feel. That’s what makes her special and different form a ‘normal’ agency. I think we have achieved a lot together over the past few months, thanks to her one-on-one approach. I’m currently the only model she is representing, which means she can fully focus on my development  – besides her main work as a professional fashion photographer of course.

The most exciting part of being a designer is… “Creating your own world, your wildest dreams – and realizing that you have a keen esthetic eye and talent that can surprise myself, my peers, friends and followers by creating.”

YOU REALLY DO MERGE FASHION AND ART AS A DESIGNER IN MANY MEDIUMS – HOW DO THE DIFFERENT MEDIUMS COMPLIMENT EACH OTHER
BOTH IN TERMS OF YOUR CREATIVITY AND IN TERMS OF THE END RESULT?

The mediums may be different, the inspiration and message are the same. I use design and fashion in my performance art pieces, and get inspired by daily life for my couture collections. I show my collections through strong and focussed performance pieces, and so the circle is round.

 

WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR INSPIRATION? AND HOW DO YOU STAY MOTIVATED SEASON AFTER SEASON?

Cities/street life used to be my main inspiration, but the city centers in the Western World like New York, Paris and Amsterdam are becoming the new suburbia, flooded by tourists and obsessed by consuming. I live in Amsterdam’s city center and still love parts of NYC, but I diversified my sources of inspiration: on line, street life in new centers like Beirut, Tanger and Istanbul, and in my own mind. The latter is an infinite source – that will only stop at the end of my days. Still much more to come, I live quite healthily……..

 

WHAT IS THE MOST EXCITING PART OF BEING A DESIGNER?

Creating your own world, your wildest dreams – and realizing that you have a keen esthetic eye and talent that can surprise myself, my peers, friends and followers by creating.

 

WHAT WAS THE FIRST PIECE YOU EVER MADE?

It was a chair on my 6th birthday. My parents loved it.

 

WHAT PIECE HAVE YOU DESIGNED THAT YOU ARE MOST PROUD OF?

An impossible question – hence easy to answer because I just picked one of my many favorites, for an artist I love: the big dress I created for Marina Abramovic’s amazing performance at the MOMA in NYC.

 

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO BRING TOGETHER DIFFERENT ART FORMS?

Your can better ask: what forced you to do it! I think in images, in designs, in colors, in patterns. It’s impossible not to mix those millions of impressions I have accumulated in my head throughout my career.

 

HOW HAVE YOU GROWN AS A DESIGNER SINCE YOU FIRST STARTED?

Absolutely still growing each day. My best work is yet to come.

 

WHEN DID YOU REALIZE YOU WANTED TO BE A DESIGNER?

Always knew that this was my calling – so it was not a real choice. But on the Arnhem Art School (ARTEZ) I started to realize I had some talent – which can be helpful when one wants to become a designer.

 

WHO INSPIRES YOU THE MOST?

Marcel Duchamp, who by giving us a new kind of art liberated all contemporary creators. This new art not only triggered the eyes, but the imagination and the intellect as well.

 

WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR STARTING OUT DESIGNERS?

Be honest, work hard and don’t get too excited about fame, fashion, glitter and glamour. If you’re a true designer this recipe will lead to a fulfilling career.

 

WHAT IS THE MOST EXCITING PART OF FASHION WEEK? AND WHAT’S THE MOST STRESSFUL?

The most exciting part: to see, right after the show, on the faces of the people I admire the reflection or their thoughts, their questions, their love.

The most stressful: how to capitalize on my new designs, in order to create the next collection. People with good business propositions to the front of the line please.

 

WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO RELAX/CELEBRATE AFTER THE SHOW?

My good friend Gert will cook a Dutch – Moroccan meal for me and my team: Boerenkool (Kale) with mashed potatoes and Moroccan Merquez sausages. Mmmmmmmmmmmm.Yoga also helps, but Boerenkool/Merguez helps better.
