Bono van Peursum divides his time between his atelier in the Netherlands and Paris. He started his career at an early age with an internship at the atelier of designer and couturier Ilja Visser, working on both Prêt-à-Porter and Haute Couture Collections. After he moved to Paris to full fill his dream as he started his internship in the Haute Couture Atelier of Zuhair Murad. Next to his studies and internships he always worked on Couture pieces for his own clientele.
Now the designer decided it was time for the next step in his career and he created his own couture brand under his own name ´Bono van Peursem´. With his designs he tries to compliment the natural beauty of women. Every Couture evening piece is custom made. His style can be described as edgy, cool evening wear with a strong desire for beautiful materials, special fabric techniques and embroideries. Every piece is handmade and fully tailored for the client.
