Elise Kim & Edwin Oudshoorn Amsterdam Catwalk Fashion Show SS2013
During our preview interview Elise Kim already told us about all the hard work that had gone in here collection. Remember she said each one of her show dresses had taken up about 300 hours of work? Well all that hard work certainly paid of. It was a great show, perfect for the closing night of the Amsterdam Fashion Week.
Twenties inspired dresses made out of tons of the tiniest beads dazzled the audience as they danced to every movement the models made. Silhouettes were quite minimalistic and boxy, but it were all the extra’s that turned the designs into showstoppers. Like the beads, the (twenties) feathers and the gorgeous lace accents. The mix of all different materials (sheer, shiny, lace, leather) made the collection extra special.
When the black had turned into white, bright turquoise, green and white again it was time for a grande finale. Slick men dressed up in suits accompanied the twenties ladies on stage and created an glorious cinematic setting. Wow.
The Edwin Oudshoorn fashion show started with a little red haired girl appearing from a backdrop filled with bushes and flowers. Then came on the models dressed in richly styled embroidered ensembles walking to a slow song singing “Forget your troubles come on get happy”. Floor sweeping gowns were attached to nude shaded bodies with floral embroideries. Halfway the show the tempo of the music was turned up a bit and the show got a sudden circus vibe. Checks were introduced and models got colored hairlocks for a happier vibe. Then the music went slow again and long colored dresses added some extra drama to the show. Combined with the show’s backdrop the final dress, an hourglass shaped design, made up for a wonderful last fashion image. Amsterdam Fashion Week is finished. It’s a wrap everybody!
