“I was not planning its own brand to start. It is, rather, an idea of my friend. He knew someone with a sokkenfabriek in Thailand and suggested to the breistalen of my graduation collection socks. I pushed on high up-front costs and minimumoplages that I would never pick up. I found myself a manufacturer in France. When I got my first technical drawings sent, they said ‘that is not’ and ‘you do know that that is not beautiful’. I have had everything there is to explain. There are many brands on the market those socks, but actually they do so little with it. At most, a fun print or color. You can, however, all sides are taking off if you play with breitechnieken: by one pitch to change as you get a different sock.

I am with my prototypes to the people of Renaissance stepped on, to know if they are there commercial opportunities in saw. They have a beautiful order is placed. In the meantime, we have six sales outlets in Belgium, and we are next to brands such as Marni and Acne Studios. A few months ago I met someone from the design team of Paul & Joe know. He loved our socks so much that we could design for their autumn / winter collection. It was all very last minute, the socks had to be in two weeks ready, and I had an interim event at school, but it worked. I am glad that we persevered.”
