25 YEAR FASHION DESIGNER AND SUSTAINABILITY PIONEER
As an independent fashion designer, I invested already 25 years ago in durable fashion: timeless designs, searching for the best organic materials and a fair production of what now is called eco fashion. In 1994 I started my own 'sustainable' fashion label Rianne de Witte. Within the collection items for all seasons can be found. Some are new designs, others are being replaced or changed and some designs are permanent and represent classics of the brand. Therefore a popular item can be re-ordered again years later.
The violent and polluting fashion world, the abuses in the clothing industry irritated me during my studies at the St. Joost Art Academy in Breda. Searching for better alternatives has since become a guide for me. I design sustainable clothing produced with respect for humans, animals and the environment.
