Clothing as artwork

Looking for a festive outfit that is unique, original and colourful? Timeless, stylish, handmade designs that don't go out of fashion? Eva Maria!

Who is Eva Maria?

Eva Maria studied visual arts, but because of her impatience she ended up in draping. She loves to bring together colours, patterns, shapes and texture. She doesn't really think in terms of fashion and seasonal fashion trends. Rather in collections which evoke a mood, while having fun with the creation process. Usually Eva falls in love with an extraordinarily beautiful fabric that she happens to find. Since she only works with a few metres of fabric, only a limited number of pieces are produced. This designer makes handmade, original and colourful pieces in playful shapes. Craftsmanship of the highest order.

Eco materials?

Designer Eva Maria processes waste materials from local designers, but with original woven in Italy, Portugal or Spain, into new designs. If that's not a good start! But she wants to go even further and is therefore recently switching to ecological substances and dyes. For her own designs, she has a limited number of meters of fabric printed in a local company on the border of West and East Flanders. She doesn't throw away the fabric leftovers, but uses it to make scrunchies and fragrant lavender bags.

Sizing?

Eva Maria does not believe in “standard” sizes, or a standard body type. She prefers to design beautiful unique pieces without focusing on sizing and to let the clothes speak for themselves when they are tried on. With some of her pieces, such as her skirts, she only develops 2 sizes with cleverly designed and well-thought-out adjustable waistbands. This allows women of different body types to make their clothes their own and choose what makes them feel most comfortable and confident without changing the look of the garment.

Handmade in Belgium

All pieces are sewn by hand by the designer herself. She doesn't outsource anything to workshops. She believes in craftsmanship and durability. Once a piece is sold, there will never be another piece like it. Eva Maria loves to tell her story through her clothes resulting in very personal unique pieces. She prefers to design in complete freedom and shies away from bespoke tailoring. Women of all styles and body types are, however, sure to find something in her collection that will bring them happiness and joy.

Summarised

Handmade original pieces. Colorful and playful shapes made from exclusive quirky fabrics. Sustainable circular Belgian fashion design.
