Born and raised in the Frisian countryside, part of The Netherlands, Rixt Rooks graduated from ArtEZ Academy of Art and Design in 2017. After graduation from ArtEZ, she continued to develop herself, by also specializing in jewellery design.
Her designs are characterized by organic shapes, sculpture like silhouettes, sharp tailoring, femininity and innovative use of fabrics and technology. Inspiration is often drawn from nature. With a strong appreciation for classic high-end tailoring and new technologies, she manages to come up with innovative designs that challenge the boundaries of material, shape, and aesthetic. Rixt’s commitment to sustainability is evident throughout all her work to be a responsible, honest, and modern designer. She works a lot with recycled materials and is currently working on a project with jewellery made out of recycled silver.
Rixt Rooks is currently based in Amsterdam, for more info please get in contact. Portfolio on request.
