Abdominoplasty by Steinbusch x Foot Care by Penn

Beauty and fashion

At the 2019 Fashion Show of ArtEZ Arnhem, during the presentation of Birgit Steinbusch‘ collection ‘Abdominoplasty’, we really had to think of one of our all-time favorite images by Irving Penn; could not get it out of our mind. Penn’s photo ‘foot care’ was made in 1990 for Vogue Magazine.

Okay, we reminded ourselves once again that what we vizualie in our minds, always works in real life as well! Just that, that’s it for today. xoxo Mimi Berlin


Abdominoplasty or “tummy tuck” is a cosmetic surgery procedure used to make the abdomen thinner and more firm. The surgery involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen in order to tighten the muscle and fascia of the abdominal wall. This type of surgery is usually sought by patients with loose or sagging tissues after pregnancy or major weight loss.
