Design Intern For Madrid Atelier
Descripción de la empresa
Jan Taminiau (1975, Goirle) is one of the most exclusive and successful Dutch fashion designers.
He is known for his love for exquisite embroidery and lavish couture dresses. His work has a refined, conceptual undertone yet never loses sight of the woman he is designing for. Always pushing himself to make the ultimate dress for his client, he is constantly exploring new shapes and techniques, all whilst cherishing the traditional crafts.
“Couture isn’t about reality or wearability, it is freedom of thinking. My atelier, like a lab, is a place of discovery and development. After which a new journey begins to translate my couture to clothing for women.”
Taminiau graduated Cum Laude from the Academy of Art and Design in Arnhem and during the Masters that followed he did various traineeships at Olivier Theyskens, Oscar Süleyman, corsetier Hubert Barrere and lacemaker Hurel in Paris. He presented his master’s project entitled ‘Unfolding’ at the Paris Fashion Week, which was followed by a window exhibition at Colette in Paris.
In 2004 he launched his own independent label, JANTAMINIAU, and from 2007 onwards has showed his collections twice a year in Paris during Couture fashion week.
His collections were well received and he immediately started building his own loyal customer base. In 2009 the Dutch Queen Maxima was spotted in a daring look from JANTAMINIAU and has been a regular customer ever since, even choosing Taminiau to design her dress and cape for the King’s coronation. More royal houses have followed and celebrities have also taken a liking to his red-carpet worthy designs. For example, Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Beyonce have been spotted in his creations.
Jan Taminiau’s designs are rich in detail, shape and texture and have therefore been picked up by various museums over the years. In 2018 the Central Museum in Utrecht presented a major exhibition of his work, which resulted in the most visited exhibition in the museum’s history.
JANTAMINIAU continues to be an independent label and opened one year ago an atelier in Madrid in order to be closer to its Spanish and Latin-American customers, and develop his ready to wear line TAMINIAU.
