Lotte van Dijk founded this year her womenswear label Atelier and she presented her collection "Inside Atelier" at the 27th Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam.

In her collection she explores the relationship between painting and fashion design.
Expressive, feminine pieces are emphasised by elementary silhouettes. Illustrative prints and intricate materials are used in this collection. The intelligent construction of her creations are designed for ease of wearing.
I always start by creating illustrations, almost without thinking - as a result they have a certain freedom. The images often surprise me. I seek to translate the atmosphere of my illustrations into something wearable.
Atelier develops made-to-measure prints and textiles per garment rather than on the roll. The development of the silhouette, material and print are interconnected processes; one does not exist without the other. Making each garment unique.
By painting on fabric and draping with the result, you keep the strength of the illustration and immediately see the impact of the painting on the silhouette - the relationship is clear, as opposed to a to dimensional print, developed independently.

Textiles and garments are built up layer by layer, re-worked and transformed utilising artisanal and industrial techniques. From hand painted prints to custom-woven jacquards: each piece reveals the designer's hand.
