Girls of Dust is the female counterpart of Eat Dust clothing, launched by Rob Harmsen and Keith Hioco in 2010.
Designer Aline Walther graduated together with Keith at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. Both worked as freelance designers for diverse labels before creating a project of their own. Rob is the sales and marketing mastermind behind the collections. He has an international sales background and worked for several major (denim) brands.
The collection is deeply inspired by vintage workwear, military, and iconic menswear. This inspiration is beautifully translated to contemporary women's cuts. Each collection is built around fundamental pieces to create a perfect timeless wardrobe. Some shapes will re-appear in different qualities and a few key pieces will be added seasonally.
Girls of Dust uses beautiful natural fabrics from mostly Europe, except for some special delicate Japanese fabrics. They use the finest wool from Schotland, Portuguese organic cotton, and waxed cotton. Every item is fairly made in Portugal.
All clothing by Girls of dust is easy to wear and as strong as the women who wear them.
