"When I was young I was intrigued by old paintings in art books with women posing in exuberant gowns. I admired the colors, the expression of fabrics, detailing..., wishing I could go back in time. Instead, I teached myself making clothes, helped by my dad who taught me how to use the sewingmachine."
The pure silk scarves of Atelier Markx are unique and ethically made, using high-quality existing materials: leftover stock and vintage couture fabrics.
Atelier Markx restores the beauty of these abandoned materials by adding silkscreen prints. Yet, this process is more than up cycling. The scarves are a canvas for the elaboration of the designers imagination.
Founder and designer Saskia Markx is a Dutch fashion designer based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
