Photoshoot at Westbroekpark

Today we collaborated again with talented Spanish photographer Francisco Reina and our lovely model Jamie Santpoort. We finished the project of Francisco where we started with in april this year, and we did a shoot with the designs we made for the poets of Poezie aan de Waterkant, location: a still very sunny and full of flowers decorated park in The Hague.

Poëzie aan de waterkant

Saturday the 31st of August the 13th edition of Poëzie aan de waterkant, a poetry festival, will take place at the Westbroekpark in The Hague. Both poets and we, fashion designers, have been inspired by ‘the Emperor’s new clothes’.

Candy Photoshoot


This day Michael Danker, Iris Coopmans, Marlous de Roode and Charlotte Mailhe and Dorrith, were happy to work together (again) on a new shoot called Candy, a collection that originally existed out of one outfit designed for Pracht langs de Gracht, a theatrical boottrip with art, fashion, poetry and dance, telling and showing stories of historical locations through the canals of The Hague. This took place during the Museumnight, the 1st of September 2012, organized by Lonneke van Leth Producties & De Ooievaart.

At the formal location of the Candy Factory at the Zoutkeetsingel in The Hague, where the famous candy chains were invented in the 1950’s, Dorrith showed an outfit partly made of candy necklaces. The candy was sponsored by Look-o-Look and after this event she continued working with the leftovers of the candy. Soon the complete collection will be online!
