Today I visited my sister in Utrecht. She took this picture of me while we were wandering around in Utrecht. The skirt is my first design for the study. I love the length and the colors and I think my sister did a really good job with the composition of the picture.

This year my study started with designing clothes for children. I had some starting problems with my design because I never really thought of children clothes. I know what I would like to wear myself, but for a child its completely different. Luckily my mum had some magazines from the 80ties which were a really good inspiration. The fabric is my favourite so far. I found the material on the Utrechtse material market and immediately bought everything that was left. I think the print and colors are amazing and add some real sweetness to the design.
A few weeks ago I spent the day in Amsterdam, visiting the always inspiring Noordermarkt and just wandering around. The picture is not very clear but I really love the composition. The idea of drowning in the crowd but still kind of stand out.
The jacket im wearing is one of my own projects. Its the same design as the brown jacket, which you can see in my previous post, but gives a whole different effect regarding the material.
