Modebelofte is present again this year at the Dutch Design Week (DDW). Their fashion exhibition is titled Shape Shifters. Mimi Berlin Blogger Team visited the preview yesterday and made 2 video’s for you. Not too many so there is something left to discover for yourself. Oh, and by the way: Modebelofte has changed its name into New Order of Fashion.
The fashion exhibition
The fashion exhibition ‘Shape Shifters’ by Modebelofte / New Order of Fashion opened yesterday with a preview. Not everything was finished yet, so we had to wait a little while for the crew to finish, wow, the stress of it all!
Shape Shifters can be seen from October 20 through 28 in the ‘Warehouse of Innovation’ (that’s the former V&D department store building in a highstreet of Eindhoven.) as part of the Dutch Design Week 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.
