I met Mattijs in 2008.
Since the beginning I was sure that he would have been a successful talent. He just graduated when I saw his collection for the first time. In his early days i recognized “an enfant prodige” of Dutch fashion.
He came Up with Dutch Fashion Awards, event founded by Angelique Westerhof, director of Dutch Fashion Foundation, my very good friend and mentor.
I feel blessed and it is a privilege to have Mattijs in this event during the Milano Fashion Week
I want also thank my very special friend Angelique Westerhof who gave me the possibility of discovering this talent while I was collaborating with her.
