THE HIDDEN WORLD OF Ilja Visser
Ilja Visser is a Dutch fashion designer who founded both a couture line called 'Ilja' and a commercial label, Ready to fish_. Her studio, showroom and brand store are based in the city centre of Amsterdam. She studied Fashion Design at the Arts Academy in Arnhem (NL). The fine skills were learned during her apprenticeships with Donna Karan in New York and Maria Cornejo.More
Dutch magazine Grazia challenged a number of Dutch fashion designers to turn a black t-shirt in a Little Black Dress... The dresses would be auctioned for a good cause.
A challenge pushes you to be creative in a way. You have limited options in what you can do, but it's fun to do. And raising money for charity with your creations is double the fun for a designer.
One of their readers was so in love with the dress that she called our office to check if the dress was still available.
So sorry to disappoint her: the dress was a one-of-a-kind and already sold by now. But still, it's a nice compliment when somebody is desperately seeking one of your designs ;-)
