Camiel Fortgens B.V. is an Amsterdam-based clothing brand. A hub of people working to uncover the unpolished nature of people and their social behavior, in which clothing and imagery play a major role. The brand was catapulted into existence in 2014 when Camiel graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven. His choice not to go to fashion school left him untarnished by the rules of fashion. This allowed him to look at things from scratch, creating garments and running the brand in an unpolluted manner. Instead the brand searches for what feels right today, creating an image/philosophy that challenges what we know and consider to be normal. Working with shapes, fabrics and details of archetypal garments to create reconstructed, unpolished wearable pieces.
