Winde Rienstra Fashion Week Amsterdam FW2014
Ask any Amsterdam fashion week visitor what show they’re looking forward to and chances are big “Winde Rienstra” is the answer. Those people were not disappointed tonight. While Frisian singer Nynke Laverman – dressed in Winde Rienstra – sang a song in Frisian young girls with buns high on their head on towering high wooden shoes slowly entered the runway. They looked long, lean and serene in their off white and mint colored creations. Inspired by her own roots, Fryslan, Winde, more than in her previous collections, focused on real clothing instead of just her wooden constructions for this “STJERREN OAN IT FIRMAMINT” collection. It made her looks more ‘real’ but still the designs were true pieces of art. The structured knitwear, the long sheer fabrics as well as the sparkling, sequined creations and the designs created at the Tilburg Textile Museum. Perfectly balanced, each look as impressive as the one before. And as if we didn’t have enough time to glaze at the beautiful handmade looks at the end all girls appeared once more. Standing on spinning boards the models gave us one more extra look at their attires, which shined as a flickering light in the dark, like stars in the firmament. Amen.
