13 Jan FashionWeek Amsterdam Fall/Winter 2016
Yes!! MercedesBenz FashionWeek Amsterdam kicked off! Well, it already did last Friday, but I went to my first event on Monday. A very special one that forms part of the OFF SCHEDULE-program. It was called Fashion & Music, during which Anne van den Boogaard presented her collection, Love is the answer, at the Volkshotel together with the music artist Jett Rebel. She was inspired by David Bowie with his destructive love songs and surprising taste in fashion. And in honour of this true fashion original who died on Sunday, I dedicate this quote:
I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring – David Bowie
At that certainly applies to this collection as well, which makes clear that this promising designer believes in the fun of creating in fashion and print. The result is a wearable collection consisting of ruffled dresses, denim tops, jackets and skirts in which she plays with vibrant prints and deconstruction. And of course… A lot of love!
