Photos in courtesy of Jasper Rens van Es and Ilanka Verhoeven

For some reason I have separated the what I like to call the two different worlds I live in, but ever since the blog has had it changes and thinking about it over and over again I found now was the right time to share.
For a half year now I have been working together with my partner Jasper Rens Van Es as a creative duo were Jasper is the photographer and I'm the stylist.
Ever since the day I stepped into the first day at the academy of arts I knew I wanted to become a stylist.
However since Jasper and I both think the academy doesn't cover enough when it comes to what we want to achieve so we decided to take matter in our own hands by taking up any free time we have to shoot.
I can not even describe how it good it feels every time I step foot into the studio and start working.
It makes me feel complete.
In the little time we have been working we have both had great publications as learning experiences.
The biggest surprise to me was the fact that I was more then convinced that I would become a female stylist I'm now leaning towards menswear.
I find it more refreshing and challenging and I guess that is what I have been looking for.
We are currently working on new concepts and I can not wait to start shooting again.
You can find my portfolio here, for those who are curious to see all the series and publications we have shot.
From now on this will also be a part of the blog since it is a part of me and a part I would like to share.

  1. You both work very well together.

    On a complete side note the model JELLE in the RISE shoot is...just....stunning.

  2. I am so impressed by these photos. I didn't even begin to read the rest of the post until I had consumed the imagery for a good 5 minutes. Although I am not surprised that you styled these as your personal style is very minimal yet strong in the lines, material choices, and solid colors. To say the least I am so excited about the future of your blog and to see all of your amazing images as I can only imagine all of the ones you didn't feature in this post and I want to see more! Great job!

  3. I've seen your portfolio months ago but was always timid about letting you know how I felt about it. Well, I guess now would be the perfect time to do that! I really love that your style is so minimal yet it tells you all you need to know. No unnecessary details, no fuss but such an interesting vibe comes forward. I can't wait to see more of your work. xx

  5. It’s so interesting that you came to a conclusion that your school doesn’t offer enough for you, and once stepping into the practical part on your own, you realized that menswear might be the thing you want to do. imagine if you hadn’t done this, you still might have not known.
    anyway, you know I’m a big fan of your work. keep it up, Ilanka!
