Marleen Elenbaas (1989) lives and works in Rotterdam.
In my work parts of clothing tell a story within the context I create. I do not think in form of a collection, I rather put my designs in another context to assign a different value. During the design process I want to give myself a challenge, by means of construction and attention for detail I try to push my own boundaries.

In daily materials, details and compositions I often discover new findings. These trouvé’s can be beautiful just because of their position, the way they move or lie down, or maybe the surrounding can be an extra addition. Thinking out of daily things that make life seem so normal, where you maybe pass by quickly and don’t notice: these things are important to me. Standing still for a moment can be extraordinary. See and discover things of which the meaning is not to be underestimated.
