Hi! I’m Marlies Reukers, I’m a 3D virtual fashion designer and 3D design training & transformation specialist based in Amsterdam.

I’m  on a mission to digitise the fashion industry…

– will you join me on this 3D journey?

I would describe myself as a technical designer: I get inspired and start designing out of interest in constructions and technical details. This led to my fascination and specialisation in 3D design: 3D offered me the possibility to experiment with constructions on a whole new level – without wasting any material on samples and prototypes: it was all virtual!

Lectra Award 2018

Award for the implementation of 3D virtual prototyping in a creative design process. Awarded by representatives from Lectra, Tommy Hilfiger and H&M for my pre-graduation project 'EASE UP'.

Daunted by the over-consumption and over-production in today’s fashion industry, I decided I wanted to make a change. I didn’t want to contribute to the pollution in our industry by working in a design-role, so instead I chose to enter the industry by educating and inspiring others. I’m still designing and practicing my skills, but I decided I don’t want to apply those skills commercially at this moment.


“Eventually I didn’t want to continue designing anymore…

…because I didn’t want to contribute to this polluting industry.”


I’m currently working for Stitch, a start up from PVH Europe. We’re working towards an end-to-end 3D process for Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein. We aim to incite the digital transformation: from design to development, production and sales. Within this team, I’m running Stitch Academy: an open space where we offer trainings and workshops to facilitate 3D design thinking and adaption.
