With a Master’s Degree in Fashion Design from ArtEZ University of the Arts (2003) in his pocket, Bas Kosters set off on a thrilling safari into the world of fashion. However, it only takes a glimpse of his outspokenly colorful and remarkably consistent body of work to see that his stories go way beyond clothing propositions. In 2005, he established the Bas Kosters Studio in Amsterdam.
Even though Bas Kosters merely orbits the fashion industry like the alluring alien he is, he fully embraces fashion’s innate accessibility, which allows him to ease into people’s hearts and minds to work his magic. The unique performative quality of fashion enables people to express themselves without dictating anything. This is exactly what the multifaceted Bas Kosters is all about. His work is inextricably linked to his persona; it’s his ‘flow’. There is no plan, no marketing, no ego. Just his natural enthusiasm and genuine engagement with the world as it is.
