Energy Plan Creative was first established in 1995 developing and managing a small number of alternative fashion events for clients in the US, Europe and Japan. Originally operating out of a renovated schoolhouse in Vermont, the new studio/residence was re-established within a converted industrial cafeteria in Amsterdam in 2001. Our approach is often distinguished by the hybridisation of themes and aesthetics with origins in the worlds of contemporary art and art-history.
