Anouk’s minimalist style with earthy colors and quality fabrics really appealed to me. The challenge: a top design that matches her style, with a bit of Abare in it. Extravagance came in the form of a deep and pronounced cleavage.

The process started with an intake in which Anouk clearly indicated what she did and did not want. Yet I was able to surprise her with four different designs, which radiated both Anouk and Amber.

After Anouk made a choice from the designs, we made a digital pattern, exactly to her size, and then a toile (cotton test model) that was fitted.

The final top was made from a beautiful quality wool blend fabric in our Amsterdam atelier. Totally lined with silk, so that it feels great on bare skin.

Timeless couture top

Noor came to me with the wish to supplement her wardrobe with a timeless couture top that can be combined with jeans as well as with a neat skirt. Together we discovered which silhouette, material and “feel” the top should have: elegant, simple, sexy and luxurious.

After measuring Noor extensively, I applied a toile (cotton test model) on her, which I matched perfectly with all her curves.

The second phase was the design phase. As a result of our conversation I made a number of sketches for her and together we came to a final design.

After I fitted a toile of the top with her and made the final adjustments together, the top was made in a beautiful 100% silk satin.

The result: a simple design with boning in the bodice that creates a corset that fits, provides reinforcement, without being stuffy. The flown, flared sleeves provide elegance and a feeling of luxury and the low back gives a sexy feel. A top that Noor hopefully will enjoy all her life.
