Campaign by Justine Leenarts

Sept 2019 Tess van Zalinge launched her new collection at the Fashion for Good museum in Amsterdam. Tess’ signature is clearly present in this collection: body-conscious silhouettes, layering and the use of various crafts such as patchwork, laser cutting, folding and embroidery. Inspired by fifteen wedding traditions every look is an ode to one of these forgotten traditions. She takes fashionable heritage as a starting point to tell the story of symbolism, emotion and authenticity behind a marriage. By upcycling vintage wedding dresses and using all other leftovers from weddings, the collection shows both the fashion and the bridal industry an innovative and inspiring alternative to the traditional approach to the wedding ceremony. This innovative form of upcycling shows a special amalgamation of tailor-made work, craftsmanship and a drive for innovation specialized in ‘doing good’. A timeless, visionary and at the same time elegant demi-couture collection with a strong social message.
