Young Willemijn (1989) started dressing up, forbidding her mother to tell her what clothes to wear at the age of three. After finishing Social Studies in 2010, she decides to chase her biggest dream of combining this social interest with doing what she loves most: becoming an art director.
Telling stories and creating dreamy worlds is her biggest passion. Striving for limitless freedom in creativity. Her work always contains a touch of softness, is color driven and a little mysterious. Making her sets by hand, Willemijn’s work is a fusion of shapes, fabrics and textures. Social trends and personal themes are hidden in her concepts.
“I would love to give just that special touch to your commercial, editorial, event, fashion show, look book, music video or stage! Feel free to contact me.
I’d love to meet you!”
Art director, set designer and stylist
