Kathryn Milan Fashion Week Amsterdam FW2014
After Francisco van Benthum we jumped into our Mercedes and drove up to the city center of Amsterdam. There fashion label Kathryn Milan, a newcomer on the official schedule, presented it’s f/w collection. Since it was a client show instead of a press show the vibe was totally different from that at the Gashouder (the official show venue). Dapper gents and well dressed, prosperous ladies attended the collection presentation. They adoringly glazed at the label’s silk and satin creations (blouses, dresses and even a jumpsuit), coats with leather details (on the collars and the cuffs), tweed skirt suits and all kinds of glittery embroideries. Models got an elegant, wealthy allure through their perfect updos and chic jewelry. The closing black evening gown with an outstanding beaded collar truly was a show piece on the womenswear side, as a double breasted, woolen trenchcoat was a definite showstopper on the label’s menswear department. Designer David L. Turner gracefully walked his catwalk during the finale of the show, receiving a big applause from his attending loyal clientele.
