Bas Kosters Catwalk Fashion Show Amsterdam FW2012
On the first night of Amsterdam Fashion Week Bas Kosters blew us away with his spectacular show and performance. He started off playbacking (into an old telephone) to his own song, surrounded by five crazy dancers. Then his show started.
The influence of his sponsor for the night, phone company Vodafone, was clearly visible throughout the show. A fantastic mix of songs which involved telephones or calling (Lady Gaga – Telephone, Anita Ward – Ring My Bell, to name a few) was played. The song were interrupted a few times by a lady from a phone company saying something like: “We’re busy right now. Please hold the line” at which all models stood still.
Fashion wise it was a collection as crazy as ever. Telephone prints, letter prints, fluffly and fringed items came by. Bas designed printed leggings, long (dress-y) hoodies, structured pants and belly revealing tops. A black dress which had his face printed on it looked stunning due to the color combinations. The other prints just looked joyful and fun.
It-girl Valentijn de Hingh closed the show in an larger than life black and white printed dress with matching hat, wow!
For about twenty minutes we all took a trip to the Bas Kosters universe. In his own way the extravagant designer turned his Amsterdam Fashion Week show into one big party. Cheers to that!
