Valentine Tinchant is a Belgian designer who graduated from Polimoda Fashion School in Firenze and did an internship at the Belgian brand Ann Demeulemeester. Originally from Antwerp, Valentine Tinchant found inspiration in the waste of fashion and trash in general and came up with the idea to work with upcycling for her graduate collection.

“I like to keep irony in my work: I like to make people laugh. It’s important we don’t always take ourselves too seriously.” – Valentine Tinchant
