Always being drawn to self expression, shapes, colours and performance he pursued his greatest love: fashion design.
David Laport was born in 1986 in Goes: a small city in The Netherlands. He has always been drawn to self expression, shapes, colours and performance and studied theater before he pursued his greatest love: fashion design.
Collaborations with inspiring parties such as the Dutch National Ballet, creating unique pieces for high-end clientele and work as a freelancer for brands such as Tommy Hilfiger, Bijenkorf and We Fashion have been the primary focus between 2012 and 2014. As a starting designer, it was important to get in touch with different aspects of the business.
During Amsterdam Fashion Week (January 2014) David Laport launched his own label. This was a good warm-up for the show he gave in September 2015 during Paris Fashion Week. This show was given in collaboration with the Dutch Vogue.
In 2017 the high-end ready to wear collection is sold by several stores in Amsterdam, making the collection more widely available to customers. In July 2017 David Laport wins the prestigious European Woolmark Prize in Milan, a precious moment in his career.
David Laport has been chosen to be opening show of Amsterdam Fashion Week in 2018. A great starting moment to take the label to the next level and continue his journey as a fashion visionary.
