After seeing her graduation collection form ArtEZ in 2013, Barbera Langedijk has been on ‘One to Watch’ radar. The Haarlem born Dutch fashion designer, who by the way did internships at Walter van Beirendonck in Antwerp and Proenza Schouler in New York, which might explain her fresh and conceptual design vision.
For her graduation collection based on her study on Japansese Kimono’s she for example used holders to construct different silhouettes, which means the end of unnecessary cutting and the beginning of customizable, resizable fashion.
Her timeless garments combined with a forward thinking vision and effortless elegance makes her an exciting designer for us all to keep an eye on. I can’t wait to see her do menswear!
