With a fashionable key ring, a book about modeling by Yfke Sturm, a scarf from the Percy Irausquin collection and a Redken tube, we chose Bibi van der Velden’s goodiebag as the best of the Amsterdam Fashion Week.

Just as much as we loved Bibi’s show, we loved her goodiebag. We estimated its value at € 25 and gave the goodiebag an excellent 7,5.

Though the Bibi van der Velden key ring will be a little bit too big for our pockets, we thought it looked pretty cool. And as our whole team dreams of becoming a top model we also liked getting Yfke Sturm’s book about how to look like a top model. Besides, the scarf from the Collection PRC (Percy Irausquin) will surely match one of our outfits. And the Redken tube will be added to the rest of our Redken collection, which we gathered during this Amsterdam Fashion Week.

We want to congratulate Bibi van der Velden on winning our goodiebag contest.

Yet we have two remarks to make:

1.      After comparing all goodiebags from this Amsterdam Fashion Week, it was obvious the Supertrash goodiebag had the best content of all bags.
It came close to winning our contest. However, as none of these bags ended up in our hands, it didn’t.
We think it’s only fair to give all first two rows at a fashion show a goodiebag and not make a distinction between the sections. Moreover, since we have officially started a goodiebag contest, we think we should always get one, no matter what section or row we sit. (We also don’t want to have to goodie-beg for it).

2.      We accidently discussed one of the goodies in the Non by Kim goodiebag wrong. We described one of the items as a folder, but it actually was a handmade screen print, worth about 50 euros.
We want to apologize for this mistake. Yet we think its value wasn’t clear to a lot of people, especially since it was printed on the back of the press review, which most people throw away shortly after the show.
Maybe it should have been handed out in a different way or maybe it was just bit of a baddie to give away at a fashion show. Anyway, we are sorry for our misinterpretation.

Looking back on all the goodiebags we received last week, we think there is some pimping to be done. Some of the bags seemed worth more than their contents and after a few shows we were almost buried in Redken products. There was also a huge gap between the Supertrash goodiebag and all the other bags. So there’s a job for the other brands if they want to equalize.

We will continue on rating the goodiebags we receive at different fashion events, so we hope all brands will take the challenge and put some extra effort in arranging some new goodies for next fashion season.

Wanna take a hint?
Scarfs, books, accessories, make-up or food and drinks will do just fine!

Bibi vd Velden – Show (it) girls!
Jewelry-designer Bibi van der Velden found a great way to show her vintage-style jewelry. The set and styling were inspired by Marlene Dietrich and old school cabaret and that seemed a great and glamourous way to show her work.
