Amsterdam Fashion Week Hotspots – Part 2

January 12, 2016

Since its beginnings in 2004, Amsterdam Fashion Week has occurred twice a year. In recent years, the event has really started to make a name for itself, thanks to a selection of public shows around the city mainly focussing on Dutch and Belgian designers. Amsterdam Fashion Week aims to establish itself as the home of the New Luxury segment of the fashion market, aimed at affluent customers who reject commercial brands and instead value exclusivity and originality.

You might have already seen our post from last week with 5 events happening that week, well here are 4 more events definitely worth checking out for anybody making the trip…


Photography and Fashion – 13th Jan, Foam Fotographiemuseum

It’s hard to imagine a world where fashion and photography didn’t work hand-in-hand, the 2 worlds have co-existed for generations, so it’s no surprise to see photography take its place in Amsterdam Fashion Week. Designer Duran Lantink and writer Jan Hoek have booked Foam to present their Sistaaz of the Castle project, focussing on the transgender community in South Africa, all within the magnificent surroundings of an old canal house, re-decorated with modern chrome and glass.


Fashion on Ice – 13th Jan, ICE* Amsterdam

This is no catwalk! Fashion on Ice is a mysterious, winter fairytale, inspired by the designs of Judith van Vliet and acted out by magical ice skating figures. The ice rink in Museumplein becomes a runway, as fashion comes alive with the art of skating and spectacular lighting against the backdrop of ICE* Amsterdam.


Offline Connection – 14th Jan, 5&33 Gallery at Art’otel
