MBFWA: Dorhout Mees ‘O’ my God

dorhout-mees-mbfwa-amsterdamfashionweek-designer-fashion4

Dutch designer Dorhout Mees knows how to wow the Dutch fashion lovers! Dorhout Mees showed a gorgeous collection for the S/S 2015 season. The collection named ‘O’ made my mouth fall open and made me sigh of the beauty I saw on the runway.

Dorhout Mees was inspired by water crystals and how they transform under influence of the environment.  For example tears of joy has balanced water crystals that look pretty. While tears of pain or sadness look messy and broken. Within ‘O’ you can see this inspiration in different parts of the designs, like the shapes, prints and the use of material.
The collection has a clear idea while managing to show different elements and skills of the designer. Most looks had soft shapes, but some looks showed harder less flowy lines.

“Nothing is softer or more flexible than water, yet nothing can resist it” – Lao Tzu

The beauty of water and water crystals was really something that the collection tried to express. And they managed perfectly! The diversity, originality and feminine looks from the collection made me say “Ohhhh” more than just a couple times. I really loved the shapes from the designs, the use of different colors and materials. Can you imagine going to a special occasion wearing one of these fabulous pieces? Turning heads? I for sure can!

My final thought? ‘O’ my God, this designer is good!

Thanks to Dorhout Mees and PR agency Ganbaroo for inviting me! I loved the show! What do you think of this collection and my photos? Let me know in a comment.

Hi lovely followers,

Sorry for not posting yesterday, I just had to take some more sleep haha. Now I finally feel top-fit again to amaze you with great blog posts about fashion shows and my last outfits! 🙂 Last Sunday, wow that is already a week ago (Time goes by way to fast…) I went to a lot of fashion shows at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam! It was a busy busy day and I actually skipped one show since I was super tired and I also had to prepare and do some research about the designer and his previous career and collections for the show from Tony Cohen. Because I went to see this show for my course of Fashion Journalism, that’s why. 

At the end I went to three shows on Sunday and all these shows where just amazing! I think I can easily say that one of these shows is my favorite, I just don’t know which one haha. 

The fashion show from Dorhout Mees was a true spectacle, with a short film before the show started, amazing dresses and just the perfect background music. The whole ambiance during this show was lovely and I really liked the collection. After the show from Dorhout Mees I went to the show from Tony Cohen. Tony Cohen has a gorgeous and super sweet muse and I actually spoke to her after the show (again for my Fashion Journalism course and hopefully soon to be career). The fashion show was amazing as well, I loved the designs, the fabrics and the use of colors. Last but certainly not least I went to the fashion show from Winde Rienstra, a Frisian Dutchie who definitely has an eye for design. The gorgeous gowns, cork and coconut sky-high heels and a very intriguing Frisian singer as background music. Another show I loved! 

Check out the pictures I made after the read more button. Ciao!!

The show from Dorhout Mees, inspired by nature and wood. The first picture is actually a sort of screenshot I made with my camera from the short film.
