Leelou (Marlous Dirks, 1981) graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in the Hague after having a successful career as an actress.
She always felt the need as a kid to create storylines as if she could be part of a movie. Today, she still recognizes that desire to create new worlds where everything is possible.
Creating worlds intrigues and challenges her as an artist, she wants to capture an undefined kind of beauty, a devotion of the norm, images full of contrast in colors, details and her choice of models, balancing in between adult life and childlike fantasy.
Besides fashion, there’s also a great passion for traveling, design, interior design and art.
