The fashion design students at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam got to show their talent during the ‘Fashion Show 2018’ featuring the collections of this year’s fashion graduates, 12 of them, and a selection of work by the first- and second-year fashion students.The show was held at the NSDM terrein in Amsterdam-Noord.

ArtEZ Fashion Show 2017

ArtEZ Fashion Show 2017

Yesterday we, Mimi Blogger Team, went to see the annual show of ArtEZ Arnhem’s fashion design department, which was held at Musis Sacrum, one of Arnheim’s cultural centers. Musis Sacrum (just love that name) has restrooms larger than our headoffices, with very high ceilings covered in travertine (but that’s another story…) The first and second year students opened this fashionshow with experimental designs and after Collectie Arnhem 2017, designed by the 3rd year students, we got to see the graduation collections. This year a group of 19 Bachelor students will be graduating; congratulations to all!

As we took a peek backstage after the show, we noticed that the detailing of the designs are pretty high standard; fabrics (and leather) are often embellished and finished by hand, also the of craft knitting, printing and embroidery isn’t lost on these students. We love that!

ArtEZ fashion show 2012

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.

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. 

Second year students: New Aristocracy

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.
