I am Lola van Poelvoorde, 28 years old and born and raised in Breda, The Netherlands. I graduated in Fashion Design from the HKU in Utrecht this year. Since the beginning of my education I was already really passionate about special fabrics and natural materials. I interned at BluePrint Amsterdam and this is where I learned about the art of dying with natural materials and specifically natural indigo.
I have also applied this knowledge and craftmanship in my graduation collection, which is called: ‘Glitter Boys and Wild West Stories’. The feministic man of this day and age is, in my opinion, a bit lost. Men like Trump or Kanye West do not fully grasp the concept of equality and show a lot of comparison with the old-school Rhinestone Cowboy. My collection connects the ridiculousness with the sparkles, indigo, pink and rough (fake) leather.
