Unlock, Becoming Collectie Arnhem 2019 Fashionshow

Collectie Arnhem 2019

UNLOCK, BECOMING

It’s that time of the year again: Collectie Arnhem 2019 is launched. Mimi Berlin Blogger Team went to see the fashion show at Loods 6 in the capital city of The Netherlands; Amsterdam. The images made for the 21st edition of Collectie Arnhem are promising already! We placed them below, what do you think? Nice, n’est pas!
The show itself lived up to that promise for sure.

Lights, Music and Action

Tthe concrete hallway of Loods 6 was lit in lilac and 4 huge ventilators were placed in the middle. There were no chairs to be found, only black plastic square packages of, what we think was hay; for V.I.P’s to sit on. The ventilators were slowly rolled to the back of the runway and then it was time for: Lights, Music and Action. The rather graphic image of the back-lighted ventilators was maintained during the show; highlighting the silhouettes of the designs in full force black, like they should be. The (mostly) geometrical silhouettes had in common that they all were fashionably elongated (which is always a joy to the eye). To illustrate the effect it had on us, at Mimi Berlin: at one point KKK outfits, a Grobbebol and a Pierrot came to mind at the same time. Fun!

Concept and Design

As for the story behind the concept and designs we suggest you read the folder, it’s very accurate and we couldn’t desribe it better ourselves. That seems lazy, but it is not. You must know that the average texts about fashion collections are an embellished, or even nonsensical, version of what you get to see. Not in this case, it is all the truth including the opening story. All 20 students and 3 tutors (Rens de waal, Lenn Cox and Dennis van der Broeck) spent a weekend together to create the footprint for the Unlock, Becoming Collectie Arnhem. And as always, we suggest you see the designs for yourself, that’s always the best way to get in the know!

Second Chance to see this collection

No worries if you missed the fashion show because you have a second chance to see all the creations made by the third year students at the annual ArtEZ graduation fashion show this summer in June. We aren’t sure if you get to feel the same magic in another space but, hey, getting a second chance is always nice.

What is Collectie Arnhem?

Collectie Arnhem is a collective project in which third-year students of the Fashion Design bachelor at ArtEZ University of the Arts collaborate to develop, design and present a cohesive fashion collection. This project offers a laboratory-style environment where students research and explore diverse aspects of the process and the profession; questioning what fashion is and proposing what fashion can be. The project culminates in a fashion presentation to a professional audience, organized by the students themselves. Collectie Arnhem is made possible with the support of the ArtEZ University of the Arts and the Made in [Arnhem] campaign. Collectie Arnhem is initiated in 1999 by Alexander van Slobbe and Gisela Prager.

Gerrit Rietveld Academie The Fashion Show 2017

Gerrit Rietveld Academie The Fashion Show 2017

It’s that season of the year again. Fashion design graduates get to showcase their work in the shape of a fashion show. Mimi Blogger Team split up to see Amsterdam’s Gerrit Rietveld Academie show both live, on the spot and via the livestream somewhere else.

Above our images, taken live at the show, which was held outdoors between the concrete pillars of a section of the A10 Amsterdam city ring highway overpass, near the WOW complex in the Bos en Lommer district. Backstage was also an interesting place: the models were covered in plastic bags, to be shielded from rain and nudity we guess. It was an added bonus for us; seeiing the designs amongst non-model-normally-dressed-people. (see more HERE)
