Amsterdam Fashion Week is all about diversity this season. The first Dutch Visionaries show sure was proof of that and the Dutch Couture & Craft presentation had a similar starting point. Supported and sponsored by a number Dutch museums it included creations of diverse visionary Dutch designers dating back to the sixties. Couture pieces by designers like Max Heijmans, Frans Molenaar, Frank Govers, Edgar Vos, Fong Leng, Ilja, Claes Iversen and a Viktor & Rolf dress from their a/w2015 collection as a finale piece worn by long and lean models who slowly walked the runway. A runway on which large white circular platforms were placed, giving the show a completely different vibe compared to the festive Dutch Visionaries celebration that kicked off the night. It felt good looking back on some of the most outstanding Dutch designs of the passed somewhat sixty years. It made us feel proud of all the heritage and talent our small country has to offer. A beautiful retrospective on the first day of the catwalk programma, now let’s move forward. On to a great fashion filled week!
