White on white on white.. The dresscode for the second show of the opening night was white. Not for the audience though, for the models. With the idea that everyday is a fresh start nine young designers (Ailene van Elmpt, Johannes Offerhaus, Liesbeth Sterkenburg, Marlou Breuls, Merel van Glabbeek, Sunanda Koning, TRINHBECX, Yoko Maja and Zyanya Keizer) presented their work. A clean slate, a fresh start in which we can write out our dreams, color with hope and shape with belief. Apart from their color palette, which was obviously limited, curator Peter Leferink gave them ‘carte blanche’. This led to very personal stories told by the nine talents brought together by hope, faith and love. Menswear looks covered in text, pleated and lace up womenswear designs, delicate and dreamy designs with beaded/sequins detailing, impressive knitwear pieces (even for little girls), kinky patent leather looks, arty head to toe creations and a couple of twin fashion ensembles. A diversified show concluded by a colorfully dressed choir singing John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’ to a peace sign backdrop. And everything just fell into place.
