Wies Schulte is from the Netherlands. She studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. After having worked for Castelbajac for two years, and then Kenzo for four, she created INDRESS in 2001.
Today, INDRESS rhymes with refined lines and original colours, fashioned in crepe and satin silks, plain or patch-worked. Graceful and aerial dresses thoroughly studied, V-necks, impeccably cut trousers, and soft knitwear.
Beyond the meticulous selection of fabric and colours, INDRESS has the most beautiful (handmade in France) magnificent and poetic silk flowers and boa feathers designed to be worn as brooches and/or as hair ornaments.
Wies pays special attention to the quality of her pieces. Every manufacturer, every supplier is chosen with great care. Every piece is made in France and in Poland. The luxurious fabrics are French, Italian, and English.
INDRESS makes ethical clothing, and has chosen to favour quality over quantity.
Wies has always been close to the artistic world. She has constantly sought out collaborations with visual artists, musicians, graphic designers, film directors and actors to better bring her brand alive. Wies works with beautiful people like Bruno Legeron and Pascale. The Legeron house, founded in 1880, is run by the founder’s great grandson, Bruno Legeron who mostly supplies the world of Haute Couture, film and television. He has collaborated on runway shows like Chanel, Dior and Jean Paul Gaultier and the movie Marie Antoinette featuring Kirsten Dunst.
There are no fashion shows at INDRESS, but films that tell tales about the collections. Enigmatic, whimsical and sexy tales.
The authenticity of the brand. The silk flower petals are cut up and dyed by Bruno. Once dyed, the silk petals are carefully assembled one by one by Pascale. The ostrich feather brooches are dyed in France by a traditional feather master. The colours are carefully chosen by Wies Schulte. These ostrich feathers can be worn as brooches or as hair. We appreciate the craftsmanship and uniqueness of the accessories.
