Club Brillant

This is it. AIFW’s last delivery for the year 2010. Optician Club Brillant hosted this show that contained some of the most memorable pieces of a selection of Hollands finest designers. Over sixty models walked the catwalk in these spectacular garments of designers including Mada van Gaans and Bibi van der Velden. The crowded show took an emotional turn when it showed the dramatic pieces of the early deceased Percy Irausquin.

Unlike the serious and sober collection Daryl van Wouw showed Saturday, the dresses on Club Brillant’s catwalk were colorful and playful. Just like how we know him.

The wearable pieces of art of Bibi van der Velden are again nothing less than absolute show-stoppers.

The red Percy Irausquin dress that was welcomed with deafening applause.
