FS: Could you please tell us more about your art and design background? What made you become an artist/designer? Have you always wanted to be a designer?
TB: I am a fashion designer, I have always made clothes and love the relevance that clothes design has to our every day lives, our second skin, a reflection of the individual in our society.

FS: Can you tell us more about your company / design studio?
TB: The high fashion label By BROWN clothes was founded in June 2007 and is based in Amsterdam. British designer Melanie Brown is the driving force behind the brand, which designs clothes for the strong, individual and conscious woman; the warrior woman. The label stands for innovation and elegance with a raw edge. Strong constructed details make up the basic design, giving the clothes a minimalistic attitude with playful conceptual elements. Through their simplicity and perfect tailoring the clothes become iconic and timeless. By BROWN is working towards sustainability and is a partner in ReBlend, a network to create new value from The high fashion label By BROWN clothes was founded in June 2007 and is based in Amsterdam.
