Painted series Painted Series is a hybrid fashion collective, led by fashion designer Saskia van Drimmelen and performance director Margreet Sweerts, collaborating with kindred spirits in a varying line-up. Painted Series explores new ways to develop and distribute clothing and likes to blur the lines between fashion and performance, expanding the idea of what a garment can be. We believe in the pleasure and strength of developing clothes in togetherness and wish to revive almost forgotten crafts, a tribute to human dignity and delicate beauty. Each piece grows out of different hands, worked on in sequence by designers and artisans of nearly forgotten techniques. To bring these crafts into the future, we explore connecting machine made and hand made, taking care for people and materials: Future Roots. Reciprocity is our aim in each collaboration, sharing knowledge and the joy of making garments.
