La Chaton Bottée
In 2010 I graduated as a Master in Fashion Design at the Royal Academy of Ghent (KASK), during my last year there I started specializing in Lingerie Design through an evening course. In 2010 and 2011 I was a national finalist of the Triumph Inspiration Awards ( this is an international award for young lingerie designers) and with my 'homewear' interpretation of a lawyer's Toga I was a finalist of the Toga Fashion Award 125.
In 2012 I decide to start 'La Chaton Bottée' (which isn't the right spelling or grammar for what it should say, I know, but still it all makes sense in my head!). La Chaton Bottée is a small, low budget business which basically means I just do everything by myself (It fits my stubbornness perfectly!)and try to collaborate with starting models, photographers and events to promote my collections. As for what I design I prefer not to follow seasons or trends I couldn't say things better than this beauti- ful quote:
“Clothes as text, clothes as narration, clothes as a story. Clothes as the story of our lives. And if you were to gather all the clothes you have ever owned in all your life, each baby shoe and winter coat and wedding dress, you would have your autobiography.” ― Linda Grant, The Thoughtful Dresser
This beautiful quote is the main thought behind my designs; Every collection has it's own story and is bounded to my personal emotions at a specific time. It's my way of dealing with everything that keeps me busy or crosses my path...I often don't even know what a collection will look like, it just grows along the way...
All collections are made in prototypes, I don't put them in production so I have the freedom to keep designing new pieces withouth worrying that other pieces or collections didn't sell; My label is very exclusive, everything is made by hand with great care for finishing and details.
(Since I read "eating animals" by Jonathan Safran Foer I became a convinced vegetarian, you will see that some of my listings state that a percentage of profits will be donated to animal welfare organisations ! Every small piece helps! Meet my cat designers/ inspirations in my shop pictures :-) I LOVE CATS!! )
Owner, Maker, Designer
Two years ago i graduated as a master in Fashion Design from the Royal Academy for fine arts in Ghent. In my last year there I started specializing in Lingerie and homewear design.
All the pieces in the shop are designed and made by me; Therefore it is always possible that there are some slight changes in the piece you purchase and the photo in the shop. It's what makes handwork so unique.
All pieces are made in very small numbers to keep my lingerie designs very exclusive.
