Martijn van Strien (1988) graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2012 with majors in textile design and trend forecasting. After working for Bruno Pieter’s Honest by. label in Antwerp he moved to Rotterdam, where he started his own studio in 2014.
Van Strien’s studio uses modern technologies to bring innovative ideas to the fashion world. By testing radically different approaches to garment design, production and consumption he changes our perception and opens possibilities for a more sustainable industry. The eponymous label ‘mphvs’ shows the merging of his fascinations for science, architecture and style.
In 2015 his studio launched The Post-Couture Collective, an open-source project that spawned the first maker community for garments. It gives consumers the possibility to produce their own clothing by introducing a line of wearable clothing designed specifically for production on lasercutters and 3d printers.
