Judith is a sustainable fashion designer who creates her own world within her concepts. Each collection or item contains a story, from a little personal story to social and environmental issues: her fashion is much more than just clothes. To empower her stories, she is always looking for the right materials. That's why Judith finds it challenging to combine conventional clothes with unconventional materials and shapes, resulting in collections that can be both clothes and art.
Judith's work has been showed at Amsterdam Fashion Week, the Dutch Sustainable Fashion Week, Cologne Fashion Days, Salone del Mobile (Milan) Identity Dress (Ljubljana) and many more.
Check out the inspiring world of Judiths' fashion by watching her collections and illustrations. Please feel free to contact if you would like to rent garments, ask for options for a custom made design or have any other questions.
We had the opportunity to do a photoshoot of the Plan(e)t Proof collection at a very special place: Hortus Botanicus Leiden. A perfect location for this collection, since the (new) materials
are all natural, ecological fabrics, and of course the self made dyes are made of flowers, herbs and (left over) vegetables.
One part of the serie has been published at Moevir Paris magazine, and the other at Malvie Magazine.
Many thanks to this amazing team who made it all possible:

On September 23, Judith showed her enlarged Plan(et) Proof collection during the Dutch Lion Awards in the Beurs van Berlage Amsterdam. It was a beautiful gala evening in which various fashion awards were presented. One of the awards, the accessory designer of the year, was even presented to Amber Ambrose Aurèle, a designer Judith has often worked with. Like this catwalk presentation, where Amber her shoes matched perfect with the garments of Judith.

Would you like to learn to sew yourself? That is also possible with Judith! She gives 1 on 1 sewing lessons, where you get started with your own project. Judith guides you through this, and because these are private lessons, all attention is focused on you, for 2 hours. This results in faster learning and making! You can book a single lesson if you get stuck at a certain point or multiple lessons if you want guidance for your entire project.
Your level does not matter, Judith guides both beginners and advanced.
During the 25th edition of the 'Schildersfestival' painters had the chance to paint the models of Judith. She styled them in outfits of several collections of her. The painters painted them live at the beach during their Midsummernight dinner.

On October 7, Judith, in collaboration with Love&Linger, presented her latest sustainable collection Plan(e)t Proof during the dutch sustainable fashion week. A presentation in the form of a show, living exhibition and 'regular' exhibition.
The collection draws attention to the dyeing process of clothing in fast fashion. Many chemicals are used for this, which are harmful to humans, animals and nature. Rivers are poisoned and entire ecosystems disappear, but the people who live along these rivers can no longer use them for their daily existence Judith looked at alternatives and wanted to experiment with natural paints, which do not involve any chemical product. This dyeing is already possible with hot water and kitchen waste, such as onion peels (red-brown or yellow) or avocado pits (pink).
The fabrics she used for this are organic fabrics with old discarded jeans, to create a nice contrast. The collection shows that natural dyeing gives beautiful results, which are certainly not dull and can be applied up to the highest segment of fashion.

We have fantastic news to share: Judith van Vliet and shoe designer Amber Ambrose Aurele have started a collaboration! Recently they joined forces for a brand new concept, which is called 'Van Hollandse Bodem'. As the name already gives away, it's about The Netherlands. A sustainable collection that is designed and made in The Netherlands, mainly from Dutch sustainable resources and produced with as much as possible from this country. The inspiration of the collection is our beautiful country. We would like to introduce our first design. The inspiration comes from the ever turbulent North Sea and is as well inspired by the masterpieces of Mondriaan. Dutch painter Mondriaan was one of the artists who was part of the Dutch Art Movement 'De Stijl', which exists already for 100 years in 2017.
