About

Clever custom clothing

My passion for making clothes started late in life; I began a study in fashion and design when I was already eighteen. Untill then I hadn’t even touched a sewingmachine. After finishing my degree my life took a different turn, but a few years back – due to Etsy – my love for making inspiring handmade clothes for special people has flourished again.

In the daytime (and a lot of nighttimes as well ...) I work as a booker for the theatre in my hometown Nijmegen. So I spend a lot of time sitting on my but, watching performances and for me it's a perfect godsend combining this daytime job with being creative myself. Most of the time that's left I dedicate to making clothes for Bilot in my small, but cosy homestudio.

I love creating items that might seem casual at first sight, but stand out by a small nimble touch. My style is minimalistic and clever; I combine basic colors with neon accents and spice up simple patterns with filled up shoulders, cuffs and kneepads. The pieces stand out by their unique details in combination with comfort and sound finishing touch.

I like to think of bilot as a modest countermovement in fashion today. Instead of fast-fahion-consumption I offer a different take on clothing. Why not opt for the sustainable way of doing things? Buy less and more handmade. So you can be sure your darling dress has been made under good conditions, with passion and care.

    Meet Kai: he takes photo's and since he's also very good with numbers he helps me out with administration and paper work. Let's not forget he's my favourite shoulder to cry on when things go terribly wrong. Yes they do...a lot.
