Sunanda Chandry Koning

Sunanda Chandry Koning, graduated from a BA in Fashion Designer from ArtEZ Institute for the Arts in Arnhem, The Netherlands.

Graduated with a book, researching how extremities in politics and religion influence both each other and the culture of dressing - often a direct reaction to what is happening in current events.

Rather than 'just design,' I love to capture the beauty or reality of things already out there. To observe without judgment, to see things as they are.

Now working free lance as a designer, photographer, illustrator and make up artist on photo- and videoshoots.
