Designer of Shoes, now&then teacher on the Amsterdam Fashion Institute, HKU and ArteZ. Frank's Beloved.*I was born on the 18th of januari in 1966 in Aphen a/d Rijn and grew up in Eindhoven. I studied fashion & design on the Academy of Arts in Arnhem and started to make handcrafted shoes in my studio at the age of 23. After 5 years of exposing my own shoes in fashiongaleries and gaining experience as a freelance designer for Sacha & Dr. Martens. I started as designer for the famous dutch brand Bronx. After 2 years I created some remarkable slingback- & sandal moccassin designs for Mag Megamoks which were never seen before and copied as hell. After 3 more years I managed the whole collection of Wrangler Footwear. After that I took a sabbatical and started to devellop my own collection with the help of my friends in shoebiz. This coöperation came to glory with the shoes you see on my webpage www.hestervlamings.com Slowly more people get to know my typical sober but strong Dutch Designs. Since July 2007 my tailormade shoes are available on the PC Hoofdstraat and were shown during the Amsterdam Fashion Week on the Museumplein and in five years my brand will be sold to the Gucci Group* Personal: Capricorn/Snake. Optimistic, independend, freeminded, spontaneous and selfesteemded. I like to look on the bright side of life and participate in any initiative with GREAT enthousiasm. I have a great perseverance and loads of energy, although I can sleep all day too. I do not follow any ratio but my own feeling and sometimes I refuse every reasonable behaviour* Make Love Not Jihad*

Who I'd like to meet:
ALL my personal hero's & heroines of the past, present and future, designers, musicians, artists & mental disturbed
