mr JANTAMINIAU had the, well deserved, tremendous honour of dressing Her Royal Highness Princess MAXIMA on the day her husband became KING of the Netherlands, the day she became our QUEEN.
and where normally the Dutch are known for having an ‘opinion’ here a country was united in adoration of this Royal Blue Gown.

Jan made the Couture House of JANTAMINIAU immortal.

and I was so lucky he asked me to portray the dress. here with mr Jan Taminiau himself overlooking his creation.
