Brazilian born Fernanda Fernandes (Isn’t that a perfect stage name?) showed her work for the very first time during her Amsterdam Fashion Week LAB show today. A show which kicked off surprisingly, by the sound of whispers and people walking on a completely dark runway holding candles in their hands. A church bell sound followed by loud monkey noise and then the models appeared. They were covered in a mix of patent leather, lame, fur, feathers and sheer materials. Corsets, capes, a Jezus inspired crown, laced up boots, masks, chokers and wide coats stressed the religious part of the collection. While several monkey printed items added a touch of humor. Fernandes closed with a large red cape embellished with gold and an ivory look with angel wings. Sensuality and edginess combined in her ‘Quinto Simia’ collection (translated Fith Monkey). We’re curious to see what’s next.

Textile designer Joelle & fashion designer Bregje experienced their fashion week debut today by showing their IINUA collection. A selection of perfectly tailored looks, which weren’t entirely new to us. During FashionClash Joelle Boers already showed some of it. Graphic prints connected the dots in their sporty chic collection, which included both cute dresses and sportive parkas. Hoodies and pointy shoulders played a big part, while towering high shoes designed by Chris van den Elzen and some arty facial decoration completed the contrasting yet harmonious looks. As Joelle and Bregje took their bow at the end we could see that contradiction in their looks as well. A contrast which seemed to work pretty awesome united in IINUA.
