I was so lucky to get invited to Amsterdam Fashion Week.
I got the chance to meet the lovely bloggers Andy, Denni and Yara in person. The last year I made illustrations of them and they are even more beautiful in person.
I enjoyed the collection IRRADIANCE of designer JAN TAMINIAU, it was like being in a black, grey and white glittering fairytale! The models faces were hidden underneath sparkling hoods as they passed by in luxurious silk designs. The showpieces had patterns in woven Baroque with special reflecting threads, showing Taminiau's passion for detailed craftsmanship. With the towering shoes the models seemed out of this world. Providing an element of tension and vulnerability to the amazing story Taminiau was showing us.
As icing on the cake there he was, right in front of me, Piet Paris drawing the radiant pieces of the collection.
