DT Couture is
based on a dream.
A dream of just creating pretty things
and making the world a more beautiful place in the process.
It just so happens, I dream in
Technicolor and love to go on adventures in texture and feel.
This shows in my
Color blocking? No, just plain make
love not war with all colors.
My designs come from a feeling, not a
need to reach a target or getting the most from a segment of the market, or even a need to achieve anything.
It’s like composing music: a feeling
that needs to be put into a symphony – or in this case: a design.
My garments are made with love… from
the drawing board, to the cutting, to the assembling and finishing.
Some pieces are unique (one of a kind),
some are made in small series.
Apart from designing as a way of
materializing feelings, DT Couture works with a great sense of sustainability.
My production is located in my own Dutch based workshop.
I do not use or stock more raw
materials (fabrics and haberdashery) than I need for production. I mainly use European fabrics and haberdashery.
As I am a local business myself, I aim
to support local business and buy raw materials in the Netherlands and Belgium.
And of course, I re-use and recycle in my
No raw products are
I simply use them for testing new
designs and techniques.
is a wonderful adventure, I can't wait to see where it will take me next!
