A world collapsed offered the most beautiful backdrop at the closing show of today’s opening night. From piles of dust Edwin Oudshoorn angelic models appeared. In their hurry to escape, when it all came tumbling down, they were able to put on their most beautiful dress and grab a chic suitcase with their most important belongings. Perhaps containing some more fairy tale like creations? Not a bad idea.. The girls looked elegant, chic and maybe even a little out of this world. Floor sweeping gowns had floral applications, raffia embroideries and airy ribbons. Forties style in the mix with Japanese kimono silhouettes. Wide sleeves, asymmetric skirts and jackets that appeared to be sculpted. Silk, tulle, crepe and wool in shades of black, coral, burgundy, gold and grey; the summit of delicacy used on some of the most fascinating robes. Indestructible fashion pieces one simply can’t leave this world without. A return to home.

A Fools Paradise is wat designer Edwin Oudshoorn described his collection and the setting of his wonderful show at Mercedes-Benz FashionWeek Nederland. No classic catwalk-event, but an improvised forest as a poetic decor. The title also referred to the restrictions striving for perfection causes. The result was a rich and elegant collection with lots of dramatic elements.

At Edwin Oudshoorn an improvised forest formed the scene for his collection presentation Fools Paradise. “An artificial paradise”, as he wrote in his show notes, “which¬† comes with the striving for perfection”. Not only the room was gorgeously decorated, a singer in the back of the room, playing the piano sang beautifully too. And then there were those dresses… first short and white, then grey, checked, sequined and red, with corsets bodices. All highly decorated, showing sparkling Swarosvki details, embroideries, feathers, as well as a lot of skin (or.. actually sheer nude colored fabric). Towards the end the dresses got longer, the models’ cleavage deeper. Apart from the elegant dresses a pair of shorts and a few skirts were in the mix too, worn with blouses with wide sleeves. All perfectly tailored and well shaped. A nice, well edited selection of chic, ladylike looks. Just what we needed on the closing night of this fashion week.
