Portfolio business wear

In this portfolio I’ll show you some of my designs for office wear.
And with designs like desk-to-dinner dresses and coats, there’s no need to change for after-work occasions. Don’t forget that these designs can be altered to your preferences. You can custom fabrics, colours, buttons and any other details.

Fashion sketch of design ‘Suit Volta’

Stand out in these fashion-forward pieces. The design of this business-suit is called ‘Suit Volta’ because it will empower your performance at work.
Below you will see how I transformed the fashion sketch of Suit Volta into a croquis.

Fashion sketch of design ‘Dress Constance’

This beautiful business look body-con dress, called ‘Dress Constance’, fits like a glove. Close fitting means that the dress will follow your curves. The lining gives the dress some sturdiness and hides imperfections in the undergarments.

Fashion sketch of design ‘Suit River’

I like to offer artistic styles for distinctive fabrics. But is was a challenge to make ‘Suit River’ from real cork.
At first the material is rigid, but later it becomes flexible and soft. Note that the jacket is packed with the construction details you love, including piped buttonholes.
Real cork is very nice to wear. In summer the fabric stays cool and in winter this suit gives you warmth. And all eyes are on you.

At the office you choose neutral colours for a formal business look. Note that I used the design of the jacket from ‘Suit River’ for this business suit made of pure wool. The dark blue colour is flattering my figure.

The same design of ‘Suit River’ is used for this versatile jacket made of blue-black coloured stretch velvet. Combined with a pair of trousers with flowers and flaring legs, called ‘Trousers Flora’, gives a silhouette that is cool and modern.

Fashion sketch of design ‘Coat Claire’

This ‘Coat Claire’ is a perfect choice over a ‘suit-dress’, or to add drama to your everyday look. You can wear this outfit three seasons, in spring, summer and autumn. For this lovely combination I used the same fabric for the suit-dress and the coat.

Fashion sketch of design ‘Suit Astrid’

.

This jacket’s lovely neckline draws all attention to the shoulders, neck and face. A smart suit that gives you the perfect look for more formal occasions. When you choose ‘Suit Astrid’ you go for clothes that stand out when you are sitting!

The jacket has an open-end zipper at the back: no need for the arms to to reach backwards in putting it on. The large front buttons are decorative only as the jacket closes with press studs. The back zipper is placed up side down to allow zipping from the neck downwards. The sleeves feature short invisible zippers at the wrists.

The skirt is made up of curved panels fitting the seated body. The back is cut high and elasticated for adjustability. The front sits low and doesn’t gather in the groin area. The skirt falls on the knees.

Quick and easy to put on and take off: it can be folded open completely using open-end zipper hiding under a decorative trim.

This business suit is especially created for wheelchair users!

Fashion sketch of design ‘Blouse Pascalle”

A white blouse is a true addition to your wardrobe. With you every season and always a loyal friend in your wardrobe.
‘Blouse Pascalle’ is a timeless, wearable and fresh start for any outfit. Once you have the perfect one, you can order it in different colours and styles, so they will certainly not get stuck in your closet unworn.

The perfect fit is different for everyone. I will make you a tailor-made blouse that fits well against the chest and with no tension on the buttons. I also make sure that the seam of the sleeves (at the height of your shoulders) should fall on the shoulder and not over it.

Variations

With one basic design I love to make variations. Think about different collars as Classic Kent, Claudine, Casino, Amsterdam lapel revers, or go for a blouse with a Jabot or Ruffles. Or a cutaway collar.

You can choose for example long or short sleeves, cap-sleeves, bell-sleeves, trumpet sleeves. Besides classic cuffs I designed special cuffs, like vanishing cuffs. Last but not least, the blouse will be outstanding by adding fine pintuck-decoration at the front.

The studio pictures show the final result of these projects.

 

 

A neat raised collar gives you just that ‘je ne sais quoi’.

Nothing beats a snow white blouse, especially when it is decorated with fine pintucks.

For a basic blouse a cutaway collar is recommended, most necks can have that well without accentuating it to much.

Fashion sketch of body-con dress design ‘Dress Alexandra’

There’s nothing like a killer dress to make you feel on top of your game. Body-con dress ‘Dress Alexandra’ offers a particularly stately elegance, while the 3/4 sleeves features a glamorous touch.
