A passion for fashion...

Hi there,

Ever since I was a little a girl, I wanted to work in fashion. I always tried to create something new with my tiny Singer sewing machine. When I got to the age of 12, it wasn't only for fun but also because it was necessary. I was about 6ft 2in and I had to make my own trousers, because I couldn't find some of my length. My mum's friend made me some trousers at first and soon I discovered I could make them myself. We bought some pattern books and mum and I tried to make my first pair of self-made trousers. It worked.

When I was about 18 years old, I decided to go and study Graphic Design, because I thought I couldn't make as a Fashion Designer. But I never lost my passion for fashion. I'm so happy I got to start working at JBC last year. After working for about 8 years now, they finally brought me some fashion back in my life.

It is an amazing company to work for. Let me take you behind the scenes.

Each season a creative team interprets the latest fashion trends and translates it into different looks for the JBC customer. They try to make the fashion from the catwalk portable, and more importantly affordable for all women.

Our trend watcher and Head of design analyze all major trends during the Fashion Weeks in New York, London, Milan and Paris. They note what is really hot and 'upcoming' by making a mood board.



Our Head of Design will then starts sketching, designing and choosing the fabrics.
This years spring collection features a lot of leather, animal-prints, sportswear, and new flower prints...



The designs will be shown to a wide group of experts. Everyone gives his or her input and the stylist will finish a full theme in detail.



The result is a trendy and bold Lookbook spring / summer collection (watch the full collection here). These are my favourite looks.
