Bluedenîmes & Minou Lejeune
The two designers met at MAFAD academy in Maastricht where they both graduated from in 2014. Dusty Thomas was one of the finalists at Lichting 2014, best of Dutch fashion graduates.
Their collaboration proved to be a very fertile offering a very fresh menswear proposal and striking accessories.
Dusty Thomas, born and based in Landgraaf, Netherlands has been designing clothing for three years and to her, fashion is the art of dressing the body. Dressing the human body creates stories. She loves stories about functional clothing. It intrigues her that clothing makes life easier for people in different situations. "We are fragile creatures after all; we need protection and cover."
Our dependency and need for fashion to express ourselves fascinates her. She aspires to make beautiful clothes for the male body through becoming a technical clothing expert. Learning about the male coupe in order to become a pattern-producing and sewing expert. Expressing her thoughts and interests in the wearable clothes she produces is what she needs to keep her mind calm and satisfied.
For FASHIONCLASH Festival 2015 she worked together with jewellery/props designer Minou Lejeune who designed the head accessories for her collection inspired by the pure and beautiful Arctic areas on our planet. Even though it's an AW collection its main function is not to warm the body. She wants her collection to emit the cold. She wants to shape the ice and the cold into her clothing. Her catwalk show will feel like an icy wind.
