The Ready to Fish collection by Ilja Visser presents a vibrant encounter between fluid and soft fabrics, brushed wools, netted fabrics, and a shyly but very balanced dash of print.
Visser’s designs combine her distinctive style “feminine with an edge” with a comforting mood obtained through tailoring that follows the shapes suggested by the materials used. An opulent yet contained choice of fabrics that provides structure to the clothes.
Skully Gin was proud to support the Ready to Fish event at the boutique on the Prinsengracht in Amsterdam. Fashion-conscious ladies were able to enjoy a Skully&Tonic prepared at the boutique bar while exploring the Ready to Fish collection.
Ilja Visser began her career in fashion design at the Artez School of Arts in Arnhem. As part of her studies she worked as a trainee at Donna Karan and Maria Cornejo in New York. In 2009 she established her own couturier under the name Ilja Visser Group on the Prinsengracht in Amsterdam. In 2013 Visser made her debut with her label ILJA during the Haute Couture Week in Paris.
