RVDK showing at Couture Week Paris

RVDK showing at Couture Week Paris

The letters RVDK stand for Ronald van der Kemp, a Dutch fashion designer who started his own first demi-couture label, for Fall 2015: RVDK. He and his team have been slowly working towards the opportunity to show, officially, in Paris during Couture Week, June 2017. (showing the collection for Fall/Winter 2018). That’s kind of a big deal; you have to be a member of the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode. Other Dutch fashion designers showing this season are Iris van Herpen, Viktor & Rolf and Belgian designers A.F. Vandervorst. (Obviously we are rooting for the BeNeLux)

Gratuliere to you all at RVDK!

Ode to Dutch Fashion

Ode to Dutch Fashion

Good Morning! Today we have a tip on how to spend your Sunday; Go visit The Gemeentemuseum in The Hague for the fashion exhibition “Ode to Dutch Fashion”. It will brighten up the day….

Yesterday we went to the opening of the fashion exhibition “Ode to Dutch Fashion”. (see some party snaps here) The museum highlights well known names like Viktor & Rolf and the fact that the dress worn by Queen Maxima at King Willem-Alexander’s coronation, designed by Jan Taminiau, is on show. These are great designers but they aren’t the most spectaculair at this exhibition; it’s the exhibition itself that’s so great! Wandering trough the rooms filled with all these designs, (new and older ones side by side) paintings and the custom-made photo series, is really the best experience. Well, it made US happy, hope you like it too! xoxo Mimi
