David Paulus (1986), born and raised in Curaçao, is one of the self-educated and self-supporting upcoming designers. David Paulus differs from most young designers in his vision. David creates ‘Art Couture’ and is in that way non-conforming to the regular world of fashion.
“ My creations are inspired by and based on my love for art. My shows are therefor more of a theatre piece than a classic catwalk presentation and always based on a theme”.
David has shown some spectacular themes such as “Alice & the dolls” in 2011 (one of his very first shows), “The birth of the psycho” in 2012 and “The Nutcracker” in the Talent Lab of the Amsterdam fashion Week in 2013.
David Paulus has had the opportunity to follow internships with the great Chinese Designer Sheguang Hu working from Holland and Eco designers Ellen Willink and Kasia Markowska (Polish origin).
David Paulus not only designs his own fabrics (as e.g. sketched portraits of Anna Wintour in his “No Name”-collection in 2013), but also produces all of his own shows; location, models, music and choreography! David’s goal on the catwalk is always entertainment.
