Tormenta by Jef Montes photos by Marco de Rivera

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Marco de Rivera is always working. Tonight he went to Galerie Nikki Diana Marquardt on rue de Turenne to see Tormenta by Jef Montes. Montes was founded in 2012 and is based in Arnhem, the Netherlands. He graduated from ArtEZ Institute of the Arts in 2012 and went on to launching his own couture brand. He produces with new materials developed with TextielLab with a nostalgic spirit which he translates into fashion. His philosophy is you can create something new by deconstructing something old. Tormenta represents a storm around the body and with our environment going through havoc it seems that he is on to something.
