Swinda van Dijk
Swinda is always very interested in discovering new shapes and silhouettes. She has a quest for the perfect form. That is something she stands for. Her work is 3D, interesting to watch, aesthetic and uses various weaving, pleating, fold and drape techniques. She is always trying to go to the edge, looking for a new horizon. "It's always a quest how far you can go into a design. Whether it is in a commercial or in a conceptual design. I’m always searching to the balance between experiment and wearable clothing. That’s what makes it exiting”. Her ideas for new creations arise from experiences of everyday life, traveling, trends, history, cultures, current issues and her feeling of that moment.
At this moment Swinda is busy building her own business as designer and stylist. She has her own line: “Swinda van Dijk”. With her last collection "Cherishing" she won in May 2012 Event GOLD at WFC Amsterdam. So now Swinda is "GOLDEN Designer of the year”!
At the academy Swinda already made progress. So in 2006 she was nominated for the Donghua Fashion Cup, Shanghai, China. Here she showed her collection "Twinkle in the Eyes of a Child". In 2007 Swinda exhibited in the Museum für Angewandte Kunst Frankfurt her collection "Viral Elegancy" during the exhibition "Anziehen! Made in Holland " which was visible for one month. After having successfully completed the academy by obtaining her Bachelor, she was nominated in September 2007 with her graduation collection “Hide and Chic" for the South Holland Design Award in Delft. With this collection Swinda won the “WTC Fashion Award” during “Your World” in Rotterdam, in October 2009.
