Frido van der Weij

Frido van der Weij | Fashion designer Frido van der Weij graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in The Hague and finished the master course of the Fashion Institute Arnhem last January. His graduation collection titled ‘Tommygun – It’s size, color and shape! I love it!’ is inspired by the gangster culture of the 1930’s during the ‘bootlegging’ in the United States. The result is a semi-couture collection for men and women with a mix of comfort and design. During his studies, Van der Weij worked as a trainee at design house Balenciaga and the Belgium design duo A.F.Vandevorst. His creative use of different furs doesn’t go unnoticed and in 2004 made him the winner of the Fur Innovation Award. In 2004 Van der Weij won the Frans Molenaar Couture Award as well, which enabled him to create a new collection with the financial support of the Frans Molenaar Foundation. Last March, Van der Weij participated in the project ANARCHY of the Fashion Institute Arnhem in Paris during the Haut Couture week and made a fashion anarchy statement in the Caroussel du Louvre outside the fashionshow of Chanel. At the moment Van der Weij is participating in various exhibitions and will present his couture collection during the next Frans Molenaar Award in June.
