Team Peter Stigter went on the streets of Arnhem to teach thirteen photographers the tricks of good streetfashion photography. After a short lecture at cafe Dudok in Arnhem they left with one of our photographers to catch some fashionable and interesting dressed people. It wasn’t easy – Dutch like their casual style –  but the result was promising.

It was an exciting day today at the second day of Arnhem Mode Biennale. Team Peter Stigter held their first workshop ever in collaboration with Dudok Arnhem. Thirteen men and women registered for the workshop streetfashion photography and they picked out a wonderful sunny day.

First Peter Stigter and Joris Bruring held a short lecture about the history of streetphotography – Henry Cartier Bresson, Bill Cunningham, The Sartorialist – and after a delicious lunch in the garden of Dudok Arnhem the students were sent off to the centre of Arnhem. Guided by one of our teammembers- Jon, Jeannette or Joris – they had to practice what they learned. And it wasn’t easy. We really admire their courage and the way they worked at the streets, it’s not easy to handle people and stay focused at the same time!



Arnhem Mode Biennale 2011: Highlights MMKA

Museum voor Moderne Kunst in Arnhem (MMKA)

One of the exposition areas of the Arnhem Mode Biënnale 2011 is the Museum of Modern Art (Museum voor Moderne Kunst). During this month you can go there to visit the Get Real / Real Self exposition. This expo, created by Joke Robaard en Giene Steenman, basically forms a spacial encyclopedia of clothes.

Like fashion editors Robaard and Steenman combined visual images, real clothes and words to present us their idea of the language of fashion… You’ll see a range of different coats and parkas, you’ll meet a mouse made of clothes, you bump into Brooke Shields and you’ll discover why fashion is about getting real.

Series of capes and parkas ranging from functional (a Hema rain coat or an old parka worn by Eskimos) to fashionable (a designer parka/coat)

Check out the gallery of highlights below
