ABOUT THE BRAND
TOS gallery is a conceptbrand founded by Tosca Soraya Otten in 2016. The designer is creating valuable pieces that are unique and made by hand in The Netherlands. With passion for the poetic ‘savoir-faire’ in couture, the brand always involves skillful artisans to realize the pieces. Inspired by Art Nouveau, Japanese illustrations, nature, mythology and tattoos, the brand is on a creative journey aiming for timeless style and aesthetics. The enchanting textiles and minimalistic, elegant shapes together form a contemporary style that’s both wearable as artistic. With a focus on authenticity, the vision on beauty is created to touch the soul of women allover the world, from diverse cultural origins and visions. The brand is combining its three main focus points: artisan craftsmanship, arts and imagination.

In 2012 she achieved her masters degree in fashion design at the Parisian Institut Français de la Mode.
