The hosts gave me and my sister a warm welcome. I imagined myself in a jewellery Walhalla! As I tried the jewellery on, with the help of the cute host, I felt like a princess!
When the trend show started and the models walked on the catwalk too show the beautiful pieces, I did not get bored. So many various items that make the jewellery complete. Freshwater pearls, crystal and many more! Except nickel, you cannot find it in the collection. This makes it unique!
As I get to know more about DRKS, I knew this brand is a success and it will stay a success. The story behind DRKS is a dream came true. Miriam Derksen the designer and founder of DRKS ended her job as a lawyer to go after her dreams. With her 15 years of experience on designing she created her own style.
While trying the jewellery on, I noticed that the jewellery are so light to wear! She thought about this so well, wearing heavy jewellery, especially in your ears can be so annoying. Amazing that she thought about this little detail!
What I love about DRKS is that Miriam has an eye for details and a thoughtful thought towards her production and collections. Not only is the jewellery handmade in the Netherlands, she wanted her creations to be pure and honest! No mass production in low wage countries! How amazing is that?
It was so nice to meet her! She took her time to give answers to me and my sister’s questions. She even gave me advice to talk with other designers for a possible collaboration. Talking about women empowering!
