Dirk Vaessen

Footwear-Accessories Designer/Body Architect/Craftsman/Product Designer/Teacher footwear development ArtEZ Arnhem.

To emphasize the theatrical aspect of my accessories I use monumental forms. My accessories have distinct silhouettes and are intended as showpieces that can be used in dance performances, operas, performances, fashion shows or in the nightlife. Through my internship at RAVAGE, I had the opportunity to step into a world created by Clemens Rameckers and Arnold van Geuns. This inspired me to create my own world and progress with my thinking and design to work and provoke more with the changing stereotypes.
