    Three curators

    Karim Adduchi (1988) garnered success in recent years through the way he translates traditional techniques from his native Morocco into haute couture. He works with different communities worldwide, from those fleeing their homeland to experts on classical Moroccan embroidery techniques. Encounters and connections such as these guide his collections and projects.

    Tess van Zalinge
    (1989) works at the intersection of couture and ready-to-wear, giving ample attention to craftsmanship, sculptural forms, and sustainability. Having a fascination with Dutch heritage, she taps into knowledge about classical regional dresses and techniques for much of her inspiration.

Previously, Roberto worked as a curator at museums such as Wereldmuseum Rotterdam, Museum Arnhem, Museum Volkenkunde, and online fashion heritage platform Modemuze.
