TOS Collection Launch

TOS Collection Launch

On Thursday the 2nd of November TOS gallery presented her first
demi-couture collection 'The Phoenix Series'.
After her presentation in September during Paris Fashion Week,
the collection is officially available with its first point of sale, exclusively at X BANK. 

Together with a video presentation in the Vault, TOS gallery showed her pieces, but especially the aesthetics of the brand.
Moving images were played in a loop, slow motion and a soft glow that caused a dreamy and surreal feeling
during the presentation that looked allot like an exhibition. 




In 2016, Tosca Soraya Otten, the proud owner of TOS gallery, started making her own silk, hand-painted scarves.
By painting on square sides, Otten created portable art as it were. Otten's scarf paintings have now been translated into simple,
powerful garments of woven jacquard. In combination with the scarves, the jacquard designs make Otten's very
first demi-couture line: 'The Phoenix Series'.



Otten about the event: "The artistic and fashionable character of X BANK perfectly matches both the TOS gallery
and The Phoenix Series. It was therefore a great experience to present this collection close to home in the most beautiful location.
The special thing about this evening was that we were able to experience the invitees where the brand revolves around: Stories not seasons."


        


Tosca Soraya Otten graduated from the Amsterdam Fashion Institute (AMFI) in 2007.
After her studies, the designer worked in Shanghai, South and North America, respectively.
In 2012 she obtained her masters in fashion design at the Institut Français de la Mode in Paris.
She followed an internship at Cacharel and from 2014 until 2016 she was part of the Ilja Visser team,
where she created the couture collections as the right hand of the conceptual art director.
By 2016, it was time to start her own adventure, and thus created TOS gallery, a label that connects art and fashion
and believes above all in 'Stories, not seasons'.
