Hailing from the Netherlands – having dressed members of the Dutch royal family – he is today based in Paris and Maastricht, designing for his own label. Christian is advising students at the French design school ESMOD for Couture in Orbit; he explains how a long-standing interest in hi-tech got him involved.

In that time it was mostly about doing research on new fabrics that had just entered the fashion market, or were yet to be considered to be used for fashion items. Some fabrics made it into the collections, though other candidates could not meet the criteria I’d put onto the wearable and washable side of the designs. Nowadays the fibres and fabrics are more sophisticated – and usable in daily life.
