About Addy van den Krommenacker
Addy van den Krommenacker is an internationally acclaimed fashion designer from the Netherlands, who rose to fame at the Alta Roma Fashion week in 2007, followed by the final runway show of “American Next Top Model,” which was broadcasted in 140 countries. In 2011, Addy was knighted into the Order of Orange–Nassau for his lifelong contributions to Dutch fashion. That same year, his collection was exhibited at the Cannes Film Festival, where Courtney Love and Lady Victoria Hervey also wore Addy’s signature gowns.
Addy’s talent was recognised once again as he was commissioned to design a wedding gown for Her Royal Highness Princess Carolina de Bourbon Parme. Both the veil and gown featured heirloom embroidery lace, which had originally been worn by her mother Princess Irene of the Netherlands on her wedding day some 50 years ago. During the inauguration of His Majesty King Willem Alexander in 2013, members of the royal family chose to wear Addy’s creations.
In his 60s, Addy remains modest about his illustrious career despite his tremendous success. Besides fashion, the Addy brand now includes furniture and a fragrance line.
