NO SHOW: A SHORT FILM BY ARTEZ FASHION MASTERS AND TEAM PETER STIGTER

For the new crop of fashion and shoe designers graduating from the Fashion Masters of ArtEZ Institute of the Arts, Team Peter Stigter developed the film NO SHOW. This short film presents the fashion show which displays the students’ graduation projects in a sparkling setting of both backstage and onstage visuals. Better than a live fashion show, NO SHOW is thus the perfect springboard for an international fashion career.

NO SHOW is on view during the exhibition Basic Instincts, Dutch fashion in context by Premsela, The Netherlands Institute for Design and Fashion and Museum for Modern Art Arnhem (MMKA). Exhibition: Saturday 2 June through Sunday 29 July 2012, Eusebiuskerk, Kerkplein 1, Arnhem.

Graduation Shows 2011 – ArtEZ Arnhem

On thursday night, right after Topshop was opened in Amsterdam, Arnhem became the fashion hotspot again. There the fashion crowd (and many moms, dads, brothers, sisters and friends) gathered for the graduation show (one of a total of 5 shows!!) of 22 ArtEZ students. In a warm, sold out and fully packed show area, which is part of the Arnhem Mode Biënnale, we witnessed one and a half hour of some great ArtEZ fashion.

The collections of all 22 students couldn’t be more diverse. From childrenswear (Cleome Clements) to minimalistic (Sanne Schepers)- and survival (Jarwo Gibson) wear, from skinhead styles (Tom Nijhuis) to asymmetric items (AnneMarie Keizers) and from on trend fashion (Zonia van Uden) to over the top, structured designs (Annie Bosman); a perfect mix of signatures and styles.

ArtEZ seemed especially proud of talents like Linda de Jong, Anne Bosman (structured menswear), Mattia Akkermans (bright designs, crazy styling), Magnus Dekker (a collection made out of flags) and Sanne Schepers.

Linda de Jong presented some extraordinary selfmade fabrics. She showed a lot of knitwear and even used plastic in some of her Chanel-inspired designs.

Another great collection was made by Sanna Schepers. Sanne showed skirts and tops, which were scecretly attached to each other. Her designs looked simple, but in fact were made out of some difficult constructions.

A graduation student who really stood out too is William Tan. His designs (he showed so many looks) were perfectly tailored and his prints were stunning.

All these students proved they have a clear vision of their own style and potential. They also know how to turn 6 or 7 looks into a collection, which not everyone can.

ArtEZ received a Grand Seigneur this month; a corpus award for people/companies in the fashion industry and judging from some of the great collections we saw this award was well deserved.

During the Arnhem Mode Biënnale Dutch Design is well represented. You can, for instance, take a look at some of the designs Klavers van Engelen and Iris van Herpen made.

A design made by Iris van Herpen is placed within the exposition as a fountain. The design (A/W 2011) already told a great story on water and now this story is visualized even better.

Klavers van Engelen showed their airy designs, brought to live by small windmills, making the dresses dance with the wind. Their question: “Wanna Dance Amber?”

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.

 

Arnhem Mode Biennale 2011: Young Designers

June 3, 2011 by  
Filed under Arnhem, Events, Fashion, Featured Items

The installation Prologues shows you the work of 22 different young designers. They are uncomprimising, ingenious and resourceful. They make the fashion they want to make without thinking to much about the wearability. With this installation Amber wants to celebrate this attitude and not let the designer’s creativity be stopped by commercialism.

You’ll see designs of Central Saint Martins students next to designs of Bas Kosters and Marryme-JimmyPaul.
