His collection was made from waste materials, vintage scraps, and materials from previous RVDK collections. For example, he integrated the waste generated by cut flowers into his designs, as in a ruffled silk moiré bustier dress he compared to “whipped cream”, incorporating real roses, or pewter found in a thrift shop was melted down to create a bodice and delicate jewelry pieces with an Art Deco feel. And many of the looks were hand painted by the designer himself.
