Friday evening, one of the hottest of this summer (so far), the Dutch fashion scene gathered at Het Rijksmuseum to attend the Moam Collective fashion show. Or perhaps we should say underneath Het Rijksmuseum, since the cycling tunnel served as a stunning backdrop for the runway collection presentation.

On orchestra welcomed the many Dutch fashion journalists, bloggers, students and creatives (including Claes Iversen and Inez & Vinoodh) after which the Moam Collective RE-renaissance collection took over. Twenty four creations (18 womenswear looks and 6 menswear creations) inspired by the Renaissance were enough to blow everyone away.

The womenswear focused on layering and unique silhouettes as well as home designed fabrics and prints (created at het TextielLab). Menswear creations were all about effortless tailoring and a creative vision on sustainability.

Long silhouettes, the loveliest color combinations and unique prints; every single look seemed flawless. How could they not be when the five upcoming talents (Anbasja Blanken, Tijme Veldt, Barbara Langenijk, Hanna Wouda, Maartje Peeters) had dream coaches like Mart Visser, Claes Iversen. Cécile Narinx, Georgette Koning, Marly Nijssen, John de Greef and Saskia Stoeckler at their disposal.

During a week which evolves around Dutch fashion (Amsterdam Fashion Week’s catwalk program starts on the 9th of July) this was the ultimate inspirational evening. The weather, the show location, the collection and the whole idea behind this new Moam initiative fell into place. Moam founder Martijn Nekoui couldn’t be more proud and we’re just as pleased with such talent. Dutch fashion at it’s best.

After the show it was time for cool drinks and typical Dutch bites (bitterballen and kaasblokjes) in the Rijksmuseum garden. What a way to start the weekend (and kick off a new fashion season)!
