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: Special Projects

From the first of June till the third of July the city of Arnhem is all about fashion. During this month many events will be held and expositions will be open. There’s so much to do and to see you might wanna head to Arnhem a more than once. Besides, there’s one more reason to go back since some of the expositions change throughout the month.

For instance, there’s this installation made by A.F. Vandevorst. It shows a girl sleeping in a hospital bed completely made out of candle wax. This candle was lit during the opening of the biĆ«nnale and will slowly melt down during this month.

Then there is the Juun. J installation; a series of trench coats in the same color. Though the trenchcoat is quite timeless and classic in fashion Juun. J lets his trenchcoats evolve. For a month the hourglasses placed above the coats will cover the garments with sand. We’re curious how the coats are going to look within a few weeks…

The third installation that will look completely different within a month is the one created by Amie Dicke. She filled a space with her personal belongings that together created a room full of memories. Above these items an installation was placed with a number of spray guns attached to it. During the next month those spray guns will spray 100 liter of foundation (provided by L’ oreal) on all personal items. The many layers of foundation will cover up all colors and make it into a room in just one tone. A radical male-over.

Let’s see what surprise she has in mind for us.

Pauline Krikke, major of Arnhem, had the honor to open the first shop of Dutch designer Sjaak Hullekes. Besides his menswear-collection, Hullekes is the first shop in the Netherlands to sell the wonderful French scented candles of LaDuree. And, soon he will present a small collection of womenswear.
The day of the opening, Hullekes had an interview in de Spits and he told the newspaper he wanted to have a store so he can see how people react to his collections and he can get to know his clients better. “And with a shop you can present the identity of a label better”, he said. Besides the store Hullekes also started a webstore, especially for international sales in the US and Japan.

And the latest news is that Sjaak is collaborating with shoe-designer Fred de la Bretonniere, he will be responsible for a new womenswear-collection!
