Dutch designer Jan Taminiau loves Indian embroidery and traditional Indian unpolished jewelry and he has used the sari’s draping and pleating technique in his dresses. So working together with Suneet Varma on a co-creation collection during Dutch Fashion Here & Now is a treat to him, the duo will show this evening at the opening of India Fashion Week. In the Indian press Taminiau stated he is very excited. “The idea to have two worlds meet in creativity and passion is very exciting and new. I feel my work has a strong connection to the craftsmanship and luxurious femininity that India is famous for.”

Dutch Fashion Here & Now aims to create awareness beyond borders of the Dutch fashion design identity – from academy to industry- by creating sustainable networks between Dutch fashion entrepreneurs and foreign countries with aspirational consumer markets and production facilities. This week a delegation is present at India Fashion Week in New Dehli, and Team Peter Stigter is joining them, but also Mariette Hoitink, James Veenhoff, Jan Taminiau, Ellis Faas and Star Studded Studios. They and others will exchange their knowledge and experience in workshops and collaborations with designers and other fashion-entrepeneurs.

First stop was a cocktail at the Dutch Embassy in New Dehli.

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.

Team Peter Stigter joined Tilburg Texnight 2011, a cultural event focused at textile design and design/fashion in their hometown in the south of the Netherlands. We participated with a Peep-Shoot, a live shoot that all visitors could follow behind a small peep-hole. From setting up the light, make-up and hair preparations (thanks Margot from House of Orange and Jessica W from Sessibon!) until the final shoot of the model in a knitted tube that was a fusion between an strapless dress and a rug.

The design was from designer Chloe Pouzoulet, which was made in the Audax Textielmuseum – the location where the shoot took place. Please enjoy  a small reportage of the Peep-Shoot.
