Denzipfaden by Maartje Dijkstra

Maartje Dijkstra is a fashion designer who participated in two “classic” V2_ projects. She made the crash suit for Exercise in immersion 4 by Marnix de Nijs, presented at DEAF 07 and in 2009 she designed the white dress for the Intimacy Series that was developed by Studio Roosegaarde and V2_. Like many other artists we’ve worked with we like to follow the work of Maartje Dijkstra who keeps combining technology and fashion.
