Silent Wave

Silent wave first saw the day with my collection NØMAD and it has been with me ever since. Through the work of fabrics I become a story teller wanting to explore and introduce the realm of the ethereal and the invisible. « We should show life neither as it is nor as it ought to be, but only as we see it in our dreams. » Leo Tolstoy

I’m a fashion designer, pattern maker and textile print designer based in Amsterdam. I graduated from Esmod Fashion and Art school with a degree in fashion design and pattern making. Since then I have been working for fashion companies and ateliers in France and The Netherlands. Silent Wave saw the day with my first collection NØMAD that was awarded by the famous fashion icon Diane Pernet. I’m a creative textile artist and I love to experiment with fabrics and embellish them in a way of true craftsmanship and traditional techniques that have often been forgotten. For me the art of fashion is in everything around us, in all the simple things in life and most of all in the details. I design unique garments that can tell a story through the work of fabric and I find my inspiration in nature, myths and the unspoken. Fashion is a passion of a life time and that gives me a strong determination and dedication that I put into the world through all of my creations. I want to share my talents to assist other people building their own creative projects. I invite all kinds of work ranging from : technical drawings / illustrations / Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator editing / print development / pattern&sample making / custom made items / artistic hand crafted textiles or embellishments. I am dedicated to every project I have the chance to work on, wanting to offer you the best work possible respecting your needs and desires. No project is too small, too big or too impossible as long as we work as a team. Feel free to get in touch and email me for inquiries.
