Hi, I am Valentine and thank you for looking around!

I am currently a seamstress intern at the Bas Kosters Studio where I work and have worked on several projects (including the AW2017 show). In september 2017 I will start a parttime education to become a qualified seamstress at the Meesteropleiding Coupeur in Amsterdam.

To get all the skills shown in my posts I did some courses, but most I've learned myself.

The courses I did:

  • University of the Arts, London: Couture Tailoring, one week course, 2016
  • University of the Arts, London: Understanding Fabrics Study Tour to Première Vision, Paris, 2014
  • Akademie Vogue, Amsterdam: Modeontwerpen (fashion design), one year, one evening a week, 2013
  • University of the Arts, London: Starting your own fashion label, three day course, 2013
  • University of the Arts, London: Professional Sewing Skills, one week course, 2012
  • University of the Arts, London: Pattern Cutting Summer School, three week course, 2011

Please feel free to contact me! Everything is ok: stupid questions; notes; if you want me to make something for you or just for talking about the weather:
