Yesterday (8/6/2012) we attended the annual fashion show at Artez, Arnhem. The show took place at industrial park Kleefse Waard near Arnhem, in an immense, abandoned building.
Kleefse Waard in Arnhem
Eefje Wijnings: Hemisphere.
Thom Barends: Touched by Grace. We overheard a woman saying she wanted to buy the complete outfit.
Jef Montez: Dolores (named after his grandmother). A mesmerizing set of clothing made with a fabric in a silk/glassfibre blend.
Esther Kruyer: Triple.
Esther Kruyer designed some of her own fabrics, the multi colored one reminiscent of a discoball was our favorite.
Anne Kluytenaar: Lux is crossing. (Yes, it’s menswear and actually quite sexy too)
Anne Kluytenaar: Embossed Neopreen (embroidered with beads) combined with woolens.
Hendrickje Schimmel: (Truth)
Julian Stips: Mood Mosaic.
Collection Arnhem 2012: The colorful and optimistic collection.
100, and then some, models,

models getting their eyebrows re-dyed, from colorless back to normal by Judette de la Tourette.

The full fashion department presented itself: The show was opened by projects of first and second year students. Followed by Collection Arnhem, designed by third year students. After that we got to see the graduation collections, showed in an ongoing loop by truly stunning models.
The show had a very positive vibe all together, lots of creativity, diversity, fun styling and even smiling models! The outfits were sewn almost perfectly. If you bare in mind that these are all bachelor students, you know this show was a great accomplishment! But that’s our opinion ofcourse.
