Hi, I’m Marlies! I’m an apparel designer and 3D training & transformation specialist based in Amsterdam – and a big enthusiast of zero waste pattern constructions.

And when I’m not teaching or designing, you can find me
climbing in the mountains, or in my local climbing gym!

On this website you can find my portfolio, which includes a mix of previous personal and professional work, as well as a blog where I occasionally share links, thoughts or additional progress write-ups about a personal project.
