The Brazilian designer rooted in the Netherlands Alexandra Dohmen’s been here, now she is back to show her passion for crochet. Dohmen has always been lover of all kinds of crafts, very skilled, since the age of seven she had direct contact with handmade works.
The passion for wool, lines and particularly for crochet, always were present in her creations because to her is very important to maintain a link with her origins, through the crochet she manages to convey a bit of Brazil that still exists within her, even after so many years living in Europe.
With timeless collections Dohmen creates pieces to remain in the closet of her clients as true works of art, and for this she makes sure to choose personally raw materials of quality and that also are “Environmentally Friendly”, since the care for the environment is another concern of the designer.
Alexandra Dohmen believes she has found the “missing link” in the Dutch contemporary fashion scene, so art is her guideline mixed with her artistic experiences between shapes, colors, textures and fibers resulting in a beautiful work done by hand with a special technique of crochet in 3D, depending on the piece takes around thirty five days to be completed.
Extremely meticulous in her work, she follows a ritual almost religious. First she draws, and then dedicated to the study of materials and testing to find the right kind of crochet to each piece.
For those who love exclusive and unique pieces made against the industrialization, with concept, comfort and style, need to know the splendid work of one of the most conscious and talented women of the new generation of fashion designers.
