Working with Plissé + Modeontwerper Mattijs van Bergen

Mini-workshop handmade pleating by specialist Bakri Shoukeh

Mattijs van Bergen has joined his creative vision for the new dress Noor in the sustainable collection Matter with the handwork knowledge of pleating specialist Bakri Soukeh. The result is a refined knife-pleated two-tone shift dress of soft Japanese crêpe. In the temporary pop-up store in Gallery Lensvelt Amsterdam – where the dress will be launched – Mattijs and Bakri together will organise an interactive pleating workshop.

The two designers will show how pleating in fabric commences: from the precision and sharp 3D cardboard models, to the careful arranging of the material and finally the process of pleating with steam. After this short lecture the students will start to work on a scarf in a pleating by their choice. The mini-course lasts one hour.

Workshop 1 – 11 am to 12 am [*]

Workshop 2 – 2 pm to 3 pm [*]
