Young Designers/ works with teams of designers, artists, scientists and other professionals on subjects that are living in society. By means of close contact with the people around them, they create new insights, which they want to make available for a big amount of people.
In 2008 I participated in The fashion Atelier of Pal West, organized by Young Designers/. For half a year we worked with 50 teenagers on a big event. For the event, called ‘We Were Here’ I made a few pieces for the fashion show, inspired by everyday objects. For example an evening dress made of cleaning wipes, a bag in the shape of an old iron bucket, the dumpster-dress and the blabla sweater.
Hotel Casa 400
November 2008, I was asked to participate in a collaboration between Pal West and Hotel Casa 400 in Amsterdam. The hotel had a new building and needed new uniforms. With three other teenagers and Anneloes Ouwehand we designed the new uniforms for the staff. Every department has their own color composition.
