About Michelle Vossen

about

Michelle Vossen is a 22 year old designer from the Netherlands, who graduated with honors from ArtEZ Fashion Design in 2019. She is fascinated by software, machines and technology, which is revealed through different aspects of her work. In 2018 she built the 'Chaos Machine', and her graduation collection includes experiments with electroluminescent wires, 3d printing and USB ventilators.

Michelle's goal is to further experiment with bringing fashion, art and technology closer together, to a level where absurdism sometimes surpasses practicality. Her designs are theatrical, and could be worn in an alternative future, or on a sci-fi movie set.
