As a kid Tessa van den Eeden (1991, Eindhoven) always expressed through many different artforms. Dancing, singing, dressing up, writing, theatre, fashion, drawing. She wanted ALL. 
Driven by the curiousity for her own inner world, she explores the world around her.

"I make couture cause it's my way to express my inner world with a wearable artwork. I mainly show mental health subjects that I think we all find hard to face, but do connect us all on being human. I hope to create a piece that represents this subject and makes it a little easier to face cause it's a pleasure or interesting to look at."

In her work she wishes to show that all fears, desires, mistakes, sins, wishes and joy are part of us as human beings and that we should not decide weather a part is good or bad, but our only task is to feel and express them. 

"I try to create something beautiful from the themes we struggle to face like mental health, addiction, insecurity, fear or our need for attention. If I create something interesting or beautiful to look at and we see beauty in it, we might struggle less to face it." See my current project: LES FINNS

In order to make pieces that make people stop and stare she uses sheer materials and lots or handwork to create an interesting look. She made garments for special moments in peoples lives. From the start she created many weddingdresses & special pieces for performers and artists.


Tessa van den Eeden is currently based in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
