Show report: Hunkemoller

Hunkemoller was present during this edition of AIFW for the first time! Of course it was a full house with celebrities such as Jasmine Sendar and Inge Ypenburg.

The theme of the collection: "Women in bloom" which stands for the modern woman in bloom. The setting in the room was of course filled with blooming flowers all over the screens and a vanilla scent caught our attention.

Hunkemoller showed her fall/winter collection for this year. The lingerie sets were chic, romantic and yet girly. The thread for this collection were black accents combined with color and striking details such as lace, satin fabrics and strass stones.

Soft colors such as nude and pastel purple are a must this season varied with black sets.
According to Hunkemoller, the modern woman can be romantic and girlish at the same time. A few od the girlish features were the full floral printed jumpsuits, lingerie sets and robes.

Overall, a great collection which will be in stores for upcoming season!

Spotted @ AIFW

There's never a dull moment at Fashion Week. Different styles clash during this event and I love seeing the styles of others! It always inspires me one way or the other!

This group stood out because of the diversity. It's such a good picture. Punk, rock, maxi dresses, plaids and stripes are combined in this one picture. They all look fantastic! Don't you think?

This was my all time favorite guy at Fashion Week: Allard Honigh. He walked by me as I was blogging but his self-made Chanel bag caught my eye! "I made it in 5 minutes" he said. Well, that's a great accomplishment! It looks exactly like the one from the Jak & Jil blog. This is a great DIY (do it yourself) project!

Show report: RANGAKU by Kentroy Yearwood

Last friday Kentroy Yearwood's collection was the launch of AIFW's Green Fashion competition.

His collection is based on the revolutionary movement RANGAKU. It means Dutch studies or Dutch learning developed by Japan. In a much broader meaning it is Western learning. Through RANGAKU Japan learned aspects of the revolution occuring in Europe at that time.

The crowd assembled on the Westergasfabriek terrains as this show was open to the public. About 16 models stood quietly in plastic boxes showing off Kentroy's designs.

Kentroy is known for promoting the green fashion movement. That's why he continues to explore new ways of working with natural and organic materials.

This dress was one of my favorites; the pastel color and the use of soft materials make a beauitful dress.
