ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE

An appreciation for my dad: Ahpa; Richard ‘Skip’ TenHoeve, a hard-working and deeply loving father. My thesis aims to encapsulate the essence of our evolving relationship as I transition into adulthood, while also celebrating his strength and character. Drawing inspiration from his uniform, habits, hobbies, and cherished stories, my designs serve as a homage to his profound impact on my life, reflecting a daughter’s heartfelt attempt to emulate her cool dad.
Ahpa likes to maintain a scheduled routine. His uniform, consisting of a striped, long-sleeve button down and blue jeans, is always paired with his classic high length, gray socks. It’s the attire for every occasion, and the style that I have seen all my life. The ambiance of Ahpa’s jewelry store, J. Rothstein Jewelers, is another integral part of his daily life. With these elements in mind, they have guided me into creating ‘Another Day In Paradise’.

Bio

Enjoyment. 

Jess Subin Tenhoeve, a recent graduate from Parsons, is a fashion designer and artist based in New York and Los Angeles. Being a twin all her life, it was challenging to part ways and navigate life on her own. She discovered what she loves, experiencing the good and bad, but always finding joy in it. 

Jess’ patience and love for making. The satisfaction she feels wearing her garments is something she wants her wearers to experience. Specializing in high-end womenswear, Jess continues to hone her skills in hand-sewing, tailoring, denim-wear, and more. Everyday, she explores new methods to ‘draw’ her imagination, even if it’s not with a pen or pencil.
