Dutch Couture Academy was founded by Saskia ter Welle.
Saskia ter Welle, trained in haute couture embroidery techniques at, among others, Ecole Lesage, an embroidery school that is part of CHANEL in Paris, combines her love of design and dressmaking with a passion for special, traditional techniques. As the first TR Master and TR Supermaster in the Netherlands she has gained extensive experience in developing unique 3D patterns for couture clothing.
Under her own name, she presented her several couture collections at Amsterdam Fashion Week (January 2017) entitled ‘Come Fly with Me’, at Thai Silk Fashion Week (2019 and 2021), during London Fashion Week (2023).
Inspired by travel in Europe and Africa, she creates special designs for women who are looking for a unique outfit for special occasions or representative functions. Modern design and traditional techniques come together for a style that underlines the personality of the wearer.
In 2023, she participated in a pop-up exhibition in Paris at Atelier Néerlandais and dressed three dancers from Artists to Brands for a special pop-up performance during the opening of this event.
Within Dutch Couture Academy, Saskia -in collaboration with a team of international tutors- offers a wide range of courses that are accessible to all interested in developing craftsmanship within the field of fashion and couture. We work from inspiration and the development of craftsmanship to the forming of a specific, personal ‘handwriting’ within a chosen direction. It is predominantly fashion professionals who find depth and enrichment of their knowledge and skills at Dutch Couture Academy.
Saskia is an experienced trainer and coach for creative professionals on all levels. She developed trainings for musea and in different locations across Europe.
Saskia shares her knowledge about haute couture embroidery | broderie d’art in two English books, which are available as a Kindle ebook on Amazon. The title of the first book is ‘Getting Started with Tambour Embroidery’; the second book ‘Adding Volume: Understanding 3D Embroidery’.
