This text, like our clothes, like us, is not conform the ‘norm’
This text, like our clothes and thoughts, is un-edited
I (camiel) wrote this in one time
I (camiel) am dislectic
But you’ll get what i mean

Camiel Fortgens was born in Amsterdam (NL) and graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven (NL) in 2014.
In his work he plays with the materials, shapes and elements of archetypal clothes from different times and cultures. His roots outside of the fashion industry allow him to question fashion from scratch.
The motivation behind designing the collections is based on a simple ‘Why’: why is it like it is?
Starting with this question he investigates not only garments and the fashion industry but also norms in society and social behaviour.
brand was founded 2014 by natural cause without a plan.
