About Annika & Orange Mayonnaise...
I am a freelance fashion designer, mother of 3 kids and started with Orange Mayonnaise in 2012.
Since 2000 I am working in the fashion industry as an independent designer and stylist for several national and international department stores, private labels and brands, mainly for men and women clothing and accessories. It all started after a fashion study at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam and the Robijn Fashion Award 2000, where I was a finalist in the consumer category. It created a lot of attention; I got my first assignments and was able to start as an independant designer.
Orange Mayonnaise is an idea come reality and brings together 2 of my biggest passions in life; (my) kids and fashion. This online boutique is a world where childrens fashion, toys and accessories intertwine with the need for unique, cool and fun items. In the Orange Mayonnaise shop you will find stuff for babies, kids and teens up to 16 years, for boys and girls. The different well-known and unknown design and urban labels are sourced from within the Netherlands and around the globe, and every season new brands will be added.
I love the thrill of sourcing and finding amazing new clothes and items for my own kids. I know how many of you just don't have the time and that's why I am delighted to be able to bring the things I love, to you. My aim is to provide you with beautiful, comfortable and high quality clothes and accessories, which will make the daily life of you and your kids, just a little bit more special.
I get a lot of questions on how I came up with the store name. Well, the name had to be funny and Dutch, and eventually it became a combination of the dutch national color and the sauce where the Dutch are known for, or to quote Vincent Vega (John Travolta) in the classic movie Pulp Fiction by Quentin Tarantino; "You know what they put on French fries in Holland instead of ketchup? WHAT? Mayonnaise! ....."
WITH LOVE... Annika
