GRADUATING FROM THE ROYAL ACADEMY OF ART IN THE HAGUE IN 2012, DAVID LAPORT SHOWCASED A

MIND-BLOWING GRADUATION COLLECTION. STRENGTH OF CONCEPT AND INGENUITY IN TECHNIQUE KICKSTARTED THE DESIGNERS CAREER WITH EXTENSIVE

MEDIA COVERAGE. COLLABORATIONS WITH INSPIRING PARTIES SUCH AS THE DUTCH NATIONAL BALLET, CREATING UNIQUE PIECES FOR HIGH-END CLIENTELE AND WORK AS AFREELANCER 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 FASHIONWEEK. THIS SHOW WAS GIVEN IN COLLABORATION WITH THE DUTCH VOGUE.

INTERNATIONAL RED CARPETS MOMENTS WITH SOLANGE KNOWLES (MET GALA), SIA AND JESSIE J IN 2016 BOOSTED THE LABEL EVEN MORE INTERNATIONALLY.

IN 2017 THE HIGH-END READY TO WEAR COLLECTION IS SOLD BY SEVERAL STORES IN AMSTERDAM, MAKING THE COLLECTION MORE WIDELY AVAILABLE TO

THE CUSTOMERS. IN JULY 2017 DAVID LAPORT WINS THE PRESTIGIOUS EUROPEAN WOOLMARK PRIZE IN MILAN, A PRECIOUS MOMENT IN HIS CAREER.
