Amsterdam fashion week has just ended and this might have been one of the best editions yet.
The fact that there aren’t many established names participating, brings even more focus to the actual clothes and talents.

My personal favorite designer who showed on Amsterdam fashion was Barbara Langendijk. For her graduation and also during AFW she presented Japanese inspired garments with silhouettes that could be changed by the wearer; by draping and clipping them in different forms. She traveled to Japan where she learned about traditional local crafts and natural materials. What also struck me was how Barbara simplified the construction of her garments, getting rid of the usual closures, zippers, buttons and exploring other techniques to replace these twisting, folding and wrapping the fabric around the body.

    Great collection. Love the whole idea behind the transformative clothes. Very creative, practical and give a sort of freedom to the wearer.

    Wat een prachtige collectie, bijzonder om te zien hoe de kleding er zo stijlvol en chique uit kan zien en dan ook het praktische element heeft dat het veranderd kan worden. Qua vormen vind ik het wel een beetje vergelijkbaar met de show van Said Mahrouf, heb je deze ook gezien toevallig? Zij had alleen nog wat meer kleur elementen toegevoegd, vond ik persoonlijk ook een erg mooie collectie!
