Berend Brus is a fashion designer who is inspired by people who create their own reality and driven by his need to converse about societal issues. Even though his work touches upon serious subjects and carries significant weight, it is always accompanied by a wink and a great sense of humour.
Over the last few years Berend worked for different clients. This taught him a wide range of skills. From making horror costumes for entertainment parks to the glitter and glamour costumes of the Vengaboys, this variation keeps work interesting!
Besides the work he does for clients, Berend is always looking for ways to challenge himself. When he’s working on autonomous work he likes to discover and create new materials.
His debut collection Queer was shown at Amsterdam Fashion Week as a finalist of the Lichting 2018.
Winner of the Rotterdam New Talent Award 2018.
’I haven’t started yet’, his second collection, was shown at FASHIONCLASH festival 2019.
