Amsterdam Fashion Week: Lichting 2018

Lichting 2018

Yes, it’s that time of the year agian: it’s fashionweek around the world and also in Amsterdam. Before we go on about the Lichting 2018 show, you must know that it is the first Amsterdam Fashion Week (AFW) without sponsoring by Mercedes-Benz, Dutch fashion entrepreneur Danie Bles is in charge now.

Museumplein in Amsterdam

Ms Bles changed fashion week in Amsterdam in a couple of ways. She introduced the “See Now, Buy Now’ formula, aimed at the consumer market. Programmed are catwalkshows by Hudson’s Bay, Penn&Ink N.Y., Silvian Heach, Goldbergh, 10DAYS, supermarket Lidl x Heidi Klum, Maison 365, Le Cafe Noir Studio & Jenneskens and Zoe Karssen. (We are not sure how many of these shops and/or brands are from The Netherlands) the location AFW has moved from the buildings at the Westergasfabriek complex to a tent on the Museumplein in Amsterdam, which is covered with grass.

Hello World at the Hamburger Bahnhof Museum in Berlin

Hello World

Mimi Berlin Blogger Team went to visit the Hamburger Bahnhof, Museum für Gegenwart, that’s the museum of Modern Art in Berlin, the other day. The exhibiton “Hello World, Revising a Collection” works from the museum’s collection (and some on loan) were on show. What a wonderful show!

Educational

The way the exhibition was layed out was very new and interesting to us; paintings  were accompanied by groups of imagery, or narratives, ‘explaining’ the art. Both a joy to look at and very educational as well. Most of the times ‘educational’ isn’t a nice word for an art exhibiton, but in this case it is. Nothing childish about the narratives here: without using any text, they allowed the visitor to get associative information in a visual way.

Wow, we , at Mimi Berlin, loved that!! Continue reading
