'Slow down, and take a pause'.

Nothing to do moments… These moments are more and more important in our busy and fast living lives.

By a short break or pause you allow yourself to have a moment to get filled with creative thoughts, or great ideas.

This is the main idea behind andpause.

The Beginning

Andpause is established in 2013 as a weblog.
My first intention of this weblog was sharing my diy projects and ideas,
inspire my readers with fashion trends, expositions and home decor. (lifestyle)
After changing between jobs i used my website as a portfolio site and living resume.
Now my vision is to share my love for DIY,
vintage and fashion with my customers.

'Doing what you like is freedom, Liking what you do is Happiness'.

Always fascinated by pieces from the past.

Since my childhood the attic of my grandma’s been the most interesting place of her home.
What is the story behind this dress? When did you wear it? May i try it on?
Nine out of ten times, the garments were too big. Not only clothing is a fascination, even furniture, rugs, curios etcetera.
I get surprised by vintage pieces because i have never seen it before, or the styling, design,
workmanship and manufacturing is totally different than i see in my daily life as a designer.
Fashion is repeating itself, that’s a fact. I think it is more interesting to see or wear ‘the original’ from these trends and pieces.

Fast fashion vs Vintage

It is not a new phenomenon that the clothing industry is overloaded with fast fashion.
Cheap quality’s with mega quantities, reaching customers to be worn for half a year. This half-a-year expiration date of fashion is disappointing. I think fashion (and other products) made with high quality standards & the correct amount of attention is way more durable and special to wear.

'Invest in fashion with high quality standards'.

Andpause pieces

By Renee Ferron

 &II pieces are handmade items with their own history to tell. The screenprinted labels will tell you the story.
‘I used to be a … before we met’.
‘All items from the andpause pieces collection originally had a different form or function in it’s preloved life, Renee altered those items into more wearable or different looking, unique pieces.
Sometimes there are even pictures or handwritten notes added to your package with stories of it’s pre-loved life.
Before the item runs through your mailbox, first check the blog.
Most of the time it is possible to see the ‘how it’s made’ post from your andpause item.
Where the process of creating is made completely visible for you.
