Can you recall the exact moment when you decided to become a fashion designer?

Anne: I've always drawn since I was younger, therefore I wanted to go to the art academy. At the open days, I figured out that Fashion is one of the most creative disciplines, but also that is an interesting combination of design and craft.
Sanne: There is no an exact moment when I decided to become a fashion designer. I wanted to be a musician at first, but visiting the ArtEZ Institute of the Arts, I decided to apply. Now designing has become my job, but I still don’t know if I’m actually a fashion designer. 
The interaction between all the creative individuals is the basis of our work. We design by doing.
What was your first project?

Our Autumn Winter 2017 collection was our first project fully together. We literally and figuratively merged our designs to create new outcomes.

Creative process: do you work instinctively or planning each single small step? Where do your ideas come from?

The one who has the first idea first starts. But there is always a never-ending conversation going on between each other and everyone around us: artists, musicians, students. The interaction between all the creative individuals is the basis of our work. We design by doing.

What did you think when you have been contacted by Berto first?

We love to work with denim, it is a very honest material which can be transformed in so many outcomes. Berto is one of the most modern and progressive companies within this field, it’s a great honor to work together.

Which Berto’s fabrics have you been working with for your project/collection?

Globe Carbon One Black!

What's the most meaningful part about this project in your opinion? What have you been able to achieve thanks to this program? 

Thanks to Berto we can achieve our design dreams thanks to their high-quality materials and that this program strongly shows their belief in our future.

“Less but better” could be read as an endorsement for purity in design but in fashion design too. It can also be adopted as an environmental message about reduction and sustainability. What do you think about this?

Totally agree. Less but better is a mentality for us instead of a pr statement. But you need to express this message often to gain awareness and followers.

Is there anything you'd like to do that you haven't done yet?

So many! Developing our own designed book, fabrics, furniture, buildings.
