NADA VAN DALEN Nada van Dalen is a socially engaged rebellious fashion label that is always searching for the boundaries in ready-to-wear.
The label does not work in seasons, but in smaller and bigger collections in different themes. Welcome to the dark, hardcore world of Nada van Dalen. A world that is steadily seeping out into the world via the web from her studio in Rotterdam. A world that is composed of hardcore, hate, death, porn, philosophy and misery.
A world that allows losers to be losers. Prizes and nominations: • Nada van Dalen graduated cum laude from the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam. • Her collection Immergeradeaussi created in Berlin, Germany was nominated for the prestigious International Fashion & Photography contest in Hyeres, Villa Noaille.

“ With my collections I want to show imperfections. I’m not someone who makes herself prettier, instead I take negative traits and appearances and elevate them as beautiful. In life happiness should overwhelm you like love and death. These are things that just happen. Life is only comforting when it is full of imperfections and unforeseen twists . My hometown Dordrecht was an important development for my taste and visual language. It is the city of misfortune, the city of mullets and the city where the ‘frikandel snack’ was born.”
