Factory Floor
1 hour

“Crown prince of Dutch Fashion”, “King of Pleats” (Dutch Elle) are a few of the superlatives that have been used to qualify Mattijs van Bergen.


Dutch Fashion designer Mattijs van Bergen plays with classical silhouettes that are defined by a surprising use and mix of high quality fabric and creative craftsmanship. Sculptural use of draped pleating is an essential aspect of the label’s signature craft.


During this workshop you will learn the craft of how pleating is created, with paper and card moulds, and you will see the how pleating can totally change the texture of a fabric. From fluent to stiff and from plain to luxurious, pleating chances the movement of a fabric. Mattijs van Bergen mastered how to use this technique in his fashion designs.
