Statement

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.

Collectie

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”!
She also works as a freelance fashion designer for several international brands and as a Fashion reporter for Magazines.

This GOLD Award winning collection is about the revolution of the women. I've got my inspiration of the swan. A swan will be born as an ugly duckling that will transformed into a beautiful swan.
So at the end, every women in a beautiful and confident swan!
