“I knew too much about the fashion industry. I wanted to go against it,” After 25 years working for fashion houses including Michael Kors, Céline, Escada and Wolford, the Dutch designer launched his own demi-couture label, RVDK, creating one-off garments using fabrics from vintage stores, old couturiers and leather manufacturers.
“I long for the days when luxury fashion was still a deeply intimate affair. Women would build up wardrobes that
accentuated their personal style, carefully selecting designers they liked. They happily saved up for that perfect dress
or jacket, knowing it was crafted with love and would last a lifetime.”
