About:

Graduated Cum Laude from the Design Academy Eindhoven, Lena Winterink's focus lays in the stories she can tell with her design. Working with photography and textile she develops materials and images that can inspire people to think and reflect differently upon our daily habits and environment. Fascinated by how unique and at the same time identical humans are she highlights the things that otherwise stay unnoticed, so we become aware of how precious the world we live in actually is.

Personal Patterns represents the different identities and individual qualities of the entrepreneurs of the Eendagszaak, in print and garment. The Eendagszaak (One-Day Business) is a Cascoland initiative in Amsterdam Nieuw-West, where entrepreneurial locals can try out their business for one day a week. The Eendagszaak has attracted a group of local entrepreneurs who, with varied business models and approaches, are engaged in designing, making, repairing, and selling clothing. Lena Winterink, multidisciplinary designer, asked the Eendagszaak entrepreneurs, about the objects that are most precious to them. Wedding dresses, family heirlooms and jewellery emerged, each embodying personal stories. Using photos that she took of their objects, and with their stories in mind, Winterink developed a personal digital print for each businesswoman and printed it on fabric. Each of the patterns belongs to one of the Eendagszaak entrepreneurs, and literally represents a piece of her identity. The entrepreneurs were then asked to design and make a garment with their personal textile; thus, the collection spotlights the designing and dressmaking skills in the Eendagszaak. The he Dutch word for patterns, ‘patronen’ echoes the French ‘patronnes’, landladies or proprietors; the entrepreneurs who, with their individual strengths and stories, together form the Eendagszaak.
