For this Fashion Fanatics edition I’m meeting up with Cathelijne Blok. Maybe you’ll know her as the co-founder of Dutch online magazine ‘The Titty Mag‘, who’s in-depth interviews always provide a refreshing read on my Facebook feed! Or maybe you’ve seen her in the new T.I.T.S. store campaign?
Behind-the-scenes Cathelijne also works as a Creative Concept Developer at TV network BNN-VARA. In the Netherlands BNN-VARA is renowned for their innovative TV shows which focus on youth culture, social criticism & breaking of taboos. She landed this job after studying Art History at the University of Leiden where she specialised in photography & feminism.
But apart from all this Cathelijne also is a Fashion Fanatic extraordinaire with a knack for anything sparkly & vintage!

Tanith was born and raised in the city of Groningen but she moved to Amsterdam recently because she’s starting at Vogue Academy this year to pursuit her career in fashion. I couldn’t think of a better fit to follow up Joa for the Fashion Fanatics posts!

– Yohji Yamamoto
Starting off this new ‘Fashion Fanatics‘ series, where I showcase inspirational fashion-minded individuals and their views on fashion, with Joa. Perhaps you’ll know him better as Herr Hitpass, an upcoming high-fashion stylist with roots in the underground (club)scene in Amsterdam.
I was intrigued to learn more about his general views on fashion and about the developement of his signature style, which is characterised by a keen eye for silhouettes, minimalism and a whole lot of black…
