Dutch designer Ilja Visser decided to show the new collection of her brand Ready to Fish in a theatre next to the regular venue of AIFW. Her Escapism fashion show promised to ‘take us to an imaginary world’, and it definitely did…
When entering the building, it immediately became clear that this was true fashion circus: there was a fortuneteller, gymnasts, a guy on stilts and girls in Burlesque-like circus outfits handing out cotton candy and cocktails. The collection itself was presented in the theatre where the models entered the stage, decorated with red balls, a swing and a trampoline, in beautiful, feminine and cool outfits: typical Ilja Visser.
Lots of black and grey garments, but also burgundy and faded turquoise with a subtle glitter-detail created a classic winter look. The French circus music, models with huge hairdo’s and decorative make-up completed the show. We want more!
