This Winter we are hosted different workshops, hosted by different fashion designers to get an introduction in fashion design. These workshops are a great way to built up a portfolio if you are interested in following a fashion design education in the future. But also if you don’t want to work in fashion, the topics can be interesting to follow! Focus is on fashion design, experimenting with it and at De Steek the topics are always influenced by a sustainable background.
