Fashion designer Andrea Reynders has maintained a broad engagement with a range of fashion related endeavors in her varied roles as designer, educator, curator, consultant, and mentor. Reynders’ most current line features contemporary garments, and shirts under the Andrea Reynders label. Her modern designs while linear and sculptural are classic. Her designs reflect and define the space between body and garment, dreams and reality and the relationship between our private worlds and our lived expressions of being.
In 2018 she was one of the founders of we are MATERIAL, a collective of clothing and accessory designers who are committed to a creative practice that redefines the intersection of artisanal tradition with contemporary silhouettes.
Professor Emeritus and former Sage Endowed Chair of Fashion Design at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Reynders has developed and taught numerous courses in fashion as well as interdisciplinary courses that cross the boundaries of art and design. Today, she continues to nurture designers internationally.
