Jantine van Peski studied at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute before attending the Fashion Department of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp, where she graduated in 2011 from a master (MA) degree with ‘WIRES 10.0’ collection. Jantine gained design experience at the fashion houses of Haider Ackermann and A.F. Vandevorst. Her work focuses on silhouette and craftsmanship, with great attention to materials and techniques used.
For this couture collection, Jantine’s was strongly influenced by the textile sculptures from the 1970’s and specifically the macramé-technique. That was the starting point to construct pieces of clothing out of cord and yarn, straight from the body and using only one type of knot.
