Elsien Gringhuis Amsterdam Fashion Week fw2010
The fashion show of Elsien Gringhuis was all about modern times and the feeling to be locked up. The show opened with a girl wearing a helmet embellished with mirror splinters. Unfortunately she had to take of her shoes while they were too high to walk in, yet more models had problems with the shoes.
Elsien Gringhuis’s designs were colored black, white, gray and mint. The clothes had clear geometrical shapes and were made out of silk, wool and leather. Some items seemed as if they were made out of many independent pieces.
The models wore gloves and their hair was tightly braided. The last outfit of the show was a white, silk, circular shaped dress, which caught everyone’s attention.
Elsien’s fall/winter collection was the second collection she presented during Amsterdam Fashion Week. She graduated in 2008, she won the most creative collection of the year award from Italian Mittelmode and was nominated for the Frans Molenaar award.
