About Us


Iris Rijskamp, co-founding Lena, the Fashion Library, think that people should be seen as an asset to society, state, or even their own bodies, believe Suzanne Smulders, who also co-chairs the board. Especially if it comes to fashion. In Holland alone throw away 180 million kilos of fabric a year, while in other countries terrible economic circumstances have resulted in poverty and rising unemployment. Fashion can help these countries improve, as it has for many countries in Europe, and the library can be a central location for young fashionistas as well as for established fashion designers.
