Jordy Arthur is a Fashion Artist and Content Creator who is currently based in Belgium.
Jordy Arthur (he/him/any pronoun) has been obsessed with fashion since his earliest memories. At 15 he attended a fashion class combining it with regular high school. At the age of 19 he studied fashion design in Antwerp. Ever since he has been developing and growing as a person and a brand.
In 2019 he produced a limited edition, zero waste project, 2104wear, to deeper investigate how to make fashion more sustainable. He created new clothes out of second-hand pieces, and recycled materials such as old blankets etc... He later collaborated with Belgian fashion retailer, LaBottega, transforming their overstock into new garments. This resulted into a 2 month pop-up shop and live work space in LaBottega. Together they were featured in numerous national magazines (Sjiek-magazine, HBVL...).
Sustainability will always be very important in Jordy Arthur's work. "Nothing I sell is fast fashion. Everything is made to order and hand made by me. Sustainability is not a trend and should not be a marketing tool. It's a responsibility that everyone has to take."
Today Jordy Arthur's primary focus is exploring and deepening his own creativity. By using fashion as his main source of self-expression, he wants to expand and share his vision with the world. "I believe creativity is an ever-growing thing. I don't like to limit or define myself because it often leads to being put in a box and being expected to consistently perform within that box. I don't do boxes! I want to flow together with my creative energy."
Performing outside of the gender boundaries and breaking up with "the old ways," he hopes to inspire people to embrace their own uniqueness, but also the uniqueness of others. "There is so much power and creativity in a diverse and inclusive society. We can learn from each other if we would open our minds and hearts and just listen. I understand this might sound like a utopia for some, but I want to live my life knowing that I contributed in pushing our society closer to that utopia, even if it's just the smallest move."
Jordy Arthur's work has been used by many stylists, national and international, worn by artists and performers in all fields. He has been featured in numerous online and printed magazines.
Using his unique perspective and creative skills Jordy Arthur also collaborates with businesses worldwide. Through his social media platforms he creates inspiring content for clients like DePop, Zalando, Adidas etc. blurring the lines between fashion and other creative industries
