I remember my 1st runway in Paris… 10 years ago. I just finished my trainee ship at Viva magazine and I arranged a trip to Paris, during fashion week. Of course I Read more…
Saturday I visited the Maidenform show at Amsterdam Fashion Week. It was the only evening I went, I also saw some other shows that night. I was really interested in this show, some shape-wear on the runway. I expected some real curvy bodies on the catwalk. Now only some beautiful young girls who DID NOT need any shape wear…LOL! This was a great opportunity for some size diversity on the runway! Maybe next time, Maidenform? Maidenform has been in the business for 91 years, I think you’re ready for it!
Last night at Amsterdam Fashion Week: Spijkers-Sisters. Truus and Riet Spijkers presented their AW1314 SIS collection. This collection can best be described as ‘sweet rock & roll’ and is an homage to the emerging youth cultures of the fifties.
Sweet rock & roll; back to the days where rebels were sweethearts in bold combinations of traditional garments and fabrics. The Arnhem design-duo shows a collection with branded college-sweaters, polka dots, checkprints and fresh colour combinations. The blinking eye print in a black and light blue version gives a sassy twist to the collection and tells us that we can always make a small protest with the way we dress.
Feel free to show your own identity and dare to be different, have fun and rock on!
I love this last sentence… dare to be different, have fun and rock on! And this is my message when it becomes to fashion and your own style! Dare to be different, in any size and style. And to all women and men out there: dare to be noticed! And to Truus and Riet: can you make this lace/polka dot/eye-dress in my size?
