/ Most anticipated
Jef Montes’ show is what I am most excited about during the entire Amsterdam Fashion Week. Ever since I saw his impressive work first come down the runway at the Artez 2012 graduation show, where these pictures were taken, I’ve been a huge fan. It is amazing how Jef approaches materials in a high tech way and how he translates inspiration coming from gothic architecture into modern silhouettes on bodies. Jef tells me that his graduation pieces were only a blue print of many more ideas. He even gave a little clue about his upcoming collection; to take the wet look of the fiberglass dresses very literally and that it will be all about light. I can not wait!
/ Two Tickets To Give Away
I’m beyond excited to meet some of my readers give away tickets for you guys to join me during Vodafone’s Fashion Lab at AFW. Jef Montes will be presenting his collection at the Vodafone Firsts Fashion Lab; a cool initiative for new talent to showcase on a professional platform for the first time. (For those who don’t get the tickets, no need to feel left out! You can see the show live via the Fashion Week app. And you don’t even have to dress up. Or leave your laptop and bed. )
