Studio Visits - Winde Rienstra

In our ongoing series of studio visits, this time we were pleased to be invited to visit the Utrecht studio of Winde Rienstra. Yes, not Amsterdam, but after two showings of her work during Amsterdam fashion week we were curious to see where she works and talk about her collections.

Winde studied fashion in Utrecht where during her studies she did an exchange in Australia and internships at Alexander van Slobbe and Iris van Herpen. Her home-studio is situated just on the edge of an 50's social housing project under the smoke of a big coffee factory. We are welcomed by Windes intern into the studio, it’s a bright space on the 1st floor, not big but functionally laid out: two big work surfaces, sewing machines. Some prototypes and finished pieces of the latest collection are spread around the room. There are a few bookshelves and a wall with inspirational images. Her grey cat is sitting in the windowsill, Winde remarks she saw on the last studio visit with Tony Marcus Sacharias that he had the same kind of cat.
