Designer Iris Bambacht has carried a passion for making clothes since her childhood. Whereas, at a younger age she was already sitting behind the sewing machine making clothes with help of her grandmother. During her studies at the ArtEZ University of the Arts, she quickly attained an obvious interest for textiles. This is often the starting point of her unique collections, which reveal a true passion for craftsmanship with a reference to nostalgic means. Her graduation collection is a menswear haute couture story, inspired by her heritage and love for materials and structures. This is a personal topic of great importance to Iris. Each outfit portrays a certain memory inspired by old family pictures to which she connected different materials to merge two worlds together. All the clothes she made are inspired by the pictures and the small village she grew up to create a homage for her heritage.
