Silke Geib studied fashion design at Esmod International Paris in France. Her graduation collection, a men’s wear collection, was presented at the ‘14e Festival International des Arts de la Mode Hyères’, where she was one of the finalists. Afterwards, she worked as a women’s wear and men’s wear designer for fashion houses such as Maison Martin Margiela, J. Lindeberg and Viktor & Rolf. Nadine Möllenkamp was educated in fashion design at the Royal Academy of Fine Art in Antwerp, Belgium.
Her graduation collection, a men’s and women’s wear collection, was presented at IT’S # 5 Fashion Competition, where she was one of the finalists. Afterwards she worked as a women’s wear designer for the Dutch duo Viktor & Rolf. The two designers crossed paths in Amsterdam where their design interests immediately gave them a common bond. Soon after their initial meeting, they formed Blaenk in 2010. With Möllenkamp based in Amsterdam and Geib based in Berlin, the fashionable pair has chosen an unconventional way of working together. Blaenk marks the beginning of something new and intriguing.
