SPOTTED: ArtEZ alumnus Claes Iversen receives 10th Cultuurfonds Mode Stipendium
Spotted at the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds website (article in Dutch): Claes Iversen receives the 10th Cultuurfonds Mode Stipendium. The award will be handed to the Dutch-Danish designer in the Felix Meritis in Amsterdam by Cathelijne Broers, director of the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds.
In 2008, Claes Iverson finished the master Fashion Design at ArtEZ University of the Arts, with a Paris Fashion Week collection. The recognition of the Mode Stipendium is priceless to him: "An enormous pat on the back for my work. I am very happy and thankfull to be the 10th to receive this award. It is a beautiful, but also a tough branche to sustain an autonomous business; this award provides space. I am going to spend it carefully, on developing myself further."
