all about me / Tom Van der borght
Fashion designer and artist Tom Van Der Borght is about more than just fashion. His work is a combination of bright colors, textures and prints, for which he uses various techniques and crafts. His creations are playful and quite daring, and show a good sense of humor. Van Der Borght has been awarded various national and international prizes for his work.
In his latest exhibition, Van Der Borght shows his work in a different way.
ALL ABOUT ME reflects the artist’s search for a new path and says goodbye to his past as a fashion designer. Using his clothes as a canvas and leaving out the human figure gives his work a different dimension, which makes it more like art than fashion.
Exhibition 23 September to 5 November 2017.
