I'm Jorieke Tenbergen. 23 year. Born in Zevenaar. After high school I completed the 1 year-long general education at the HKU. Then the bachelor Fashion Design at ArtEZ and graduated there last June with a menswear collection.

I find context very interesting. I started digitally distorting and inflating items of clothing that I found in news photos. If you isolate this from the news photo, part of the context is lost as well. In the end I found the results for which I had used rescue suits and protective overalls the most exciting. I then started to combine elements of this with those of garments with completely different contexts, such as sportswear and denim.

For my final collection I started looking at items of clothing from news photos. For the residence, I thought it would be interesting to take existing items of clothing that I associate with the place and the environment and the images that were moved there about the reconstruction of Rotterdam. I will, as it were, also first tear down these garments and then rebuild them and merge them together. I also want to make prints of the silhouettes of the statues. ”
