"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."
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.
