Fashion School - Get to know 18 yr. old Christian from Holland!

3:01:00 PM






Sleek, Structured and Romantic. That's how I would describe this young designer / fashion blogger's creations. I chanced upon him when he left a comment on one of my posts months ago and being the nosy that I am, clicked on his comment, looked at his profile and thus found his blog. Based on his outfits posts. { his outfits are so cute! }, I decided to hit him up for an interview. Et Voila!

FMWL : PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF; WHO YOU ARE, WHAT YOU DO AND WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE EVERYDAY ACCESSORY? TO MAKE THINGS INTERESTING YOU HAVE TO ANSWER IN NO MORE THAN 140 CHARACTERS (TWITTER STYLE) GO!

C : MY NAME IS CHRISTIAN. I AM 18 YEARS OLD AND A BLOGGER / FASHION STUDENT FROM HOLLAND. MY FAVORITE EVERYDAY ACCESSORY IS, HANDS-DOWN A BAG. IT'S USEFUL AND PRETTY AT THE SAME TIME.



FMWL: SO, HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN THIS INDUSTRY? DID YOU ALWAYS WANT TO BE A DESIGNER?

C: I STARTED IN THIS INDUSTRY JUST RECENTLY. I WAS ALWAYS INTERESTED IN CREATING THINGS. WHEN I WAS YOUNG I WAS ALWAYS DRAWING THINGS AND PLAYING IMAGINATIVE PLAYS. LATER ON IN HIGH SCHOOL THAT EVOLVED INTO A PASSION FOR ART AND FASHION. WHEN IT WAS TIME FOR ME TO CHOOSE AN EDUCATION I DIDN'T ThINK OF APPLYING FOR A FASHION EDUCATION BECAUSE MY MOTHER THOUGHT IT WOULD NEVER GET ME A JOB, BUT AFTER A WHILE SHE NOTICED THAT I REALLY WAS SERIOUS ABOUT IT AND SHE CAME AROUND. THAT WAS THE MOMENT I DECIDED TO TRY OUT FOR AMFI HERE IN AMSTERDAM.

FMWL: IF YOU DIDN'T CHOOSE THE PATH YOU'RE TAKING TODAY, WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU WOULD'VE TAKEN UP INSTEAD?

C : I THINK I WOULD HAVE TRIED OUT FOR ART SCHOOL. I WOULD PROBABLY WOULD'VE WANTED TO BE A PHOTOGRAPHER OR A PAINTER,SOMETHING CREATIVE AT LEAST. I JUST CAN'T SEE MYSELF DOING A PLAIN BORING JOB FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE. I COULD NEVER STAND DOING MIND KILLING JOBS.

FMWL: DESCRIBE YOUR AESTHETIC AND HOW YOU WOULD STAND OUT FROM THIS CUTTHROAT INDUSTRY?

C : I TRY TO SEE THE WORLD AS A VINTAGE FUTURE. MY DESIGNS ARE OLD STRONG SILHOUETTES REFORMED TO FIT IN WITH THE FUTURE. I AM REALLY IN TO THE VINTAGE ARISTOCRATIC WAY OF LIVING BUT SORT OF CLASHED WITH FUTURISM.

FMWL: WHO'S YOUR FAVORITE FASHION DESIGNER? AND WHY.


C : MY FAVORITE FASHION DESIGNER IS LEE MCQUEEN FROM ALEXANDER MCQUEEN. I WAS DEVASTATED WHEN HE DIED. HIS WORK IS SO AMAZING! DESPITE THE FACT THAT I LOVE SARAH BURTON'S WORK, IT WILL NEVER HAVE THE SAME MCQUEEN ALLURE.

MY FAVORITE LIVING DESIGNER IS IRISVAN HERPEN. SHE IS A DUTCH DESIGNER WHO DOES AMAZING THINGS WITH 3D PRINTING AND MAKING INSANE COUTURE CREATURES. I JUST LOVE THE WAY THAT SHE IS EMBRACING NEW TECHNOLOGY IN TO THE FASHION WORLD. 

FMWL: NUMBER ONE ICON? AND WHY.

C : MY NUMBER ONE ICON MUST BE TOM FORD AT THE MOMENT. I REALLY RESPECT HIM AS A FASHION DESIGNER AND MANAGER. HE DOES HIS JOB EXCEPTIONALLY WELL.

FMWL: LAST ONE! IF YOU COULD DRESS ANYONE FROM HOLLYWOOD RIGHT NOW, WHO WOULD IT BE AND HOW WOULD YOU STYLE THEM?


Lana Del Rey

C : I would love to Design a dress for Lana Del Rey. I'm a huge fan of her music and look. She is so classic and feminine. I would love to put her in a stunning couture dress. something that would show of her beautiful face.

  1. I have been working in the fashion industry for 10 years now, and I found finding a fashion job when first starting out a little difficult, but I have come across some great websites that had quality fashion positions: www.ragtradejobs.com and www.fashionfirst.com.au .Everybody wants experience first, which can be hard if it’s your first fashion job, however I found doing a short course in Fashion Design a great way to get experience and knowledge of the industry. La Mode College has some great short courses, and they include how to get work experience as well. They have a short eBook on how to get into the fashion industry and become a Professional Fashion Designer. Worth a read! Hope this post was helpful!!
