Dutch fashion: Alchemist

Fashion made with heart and soul

Dutch fashion: AlchemistAlchemist is a fashion label from the Netherlands, founded by Caroline Mewe, who grew up on the island of Terschelling, and has always been inspired by the light there and 'everything that grows and blooms'. Currently she lives in Amsterdam and her brand's aim is to combine 'high-fashion with an ethical lifestyle'.

'According to myth, alchemists had the power to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary. They strove to uncover the secret formula to create gold, which symbolised perfection both in a material and spiritual sense. Like those mysterious scientists, we want to combine different elements to create a special and striking synthesis, something that surpasses its individual components', says company's statement.

'We only have the one planet. For our children and their children, we have to treat it with respect. Every little step forward in the sustainable chain can make a difference', Caroline said.
