Duran Lantink (1986) graduated from his bachelor in fashion design in 2013 at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. He was the winner of the prestigious Dutch Design Award in 2016 and recently graduated from the two-year Fashion Matters MA at Sandberg Academy in Amsterdam. Duran Lantink is known for his upcycling methods and collage techniques which reflect street style. Paramount to his ethos is Lantink’s desire to produce clothing using innovative, sustainable and ethical practices.
His collections, styling and exhibitions draw on a diverse mix of inspirations. His break-through came with his design of a sky-high pair of 3D printed heels that brought him national and international publicity, being exhibited in London, Paris, Eindhoven, Arnhem and New York. Duran presented his first collection during Fashion Week Netherlands in 2014 and has worked as a stylist and designer for Vogue, Glamcult, kingkong magazine, g- star, Janelle Monae and many others.
The beauty of diversity drives and fascinates the designer in all he creates.
