Maarten Van Der Horst

Maarten graduated with a BA from the ArtEZ Institute of the Arts in Arnhem, Holland. During his studies he completed an internship with ChloĆ© in Paris, which “taught me enough to make me want to do my own thing”. He then moved to London for his MA at Central Saint Martins. His AW11 collection channelled transvestism and escapism, marrying intricately embroidered, second-hand nylon petticoats with Hawaiian shirts, Capri trousers and Bermuda shorts, creating a John Waters-inspired wardrobe.

  1. Hellooo! In an interview I read that this collection was inspired by kid creole and the coconuts! I think I read it in the daily mail or independant?! I can see it though!!
