New Window Radio #8: Martijn van Strien


Our guest Martijn van Strien tells about how he throughout the years shifted focus within the field of fashion. He started from a technical point of view by mainly developing new materials and textiles. He then dived into the state of fashion, questioning how our clothes are produced, presented and consumed. After this more analytical and contextual phase, he went back to making, researches forms, shapes and silhouettes. All these phases were needed to not only develop a relevant, both conceptual and technical, blueprint for himself as a designer, but also as a facilitator for others. His aim is to develop a new, improved, clean, efficient and inclusive fashion system.
