The first Sunday Special is all about Tony Cohen! Ever since my interest in fashion started growing and I got to know more designers, Tony Cohen has been one of my favorite Dutch designers!
Tony Cohen always shows gorgeous feminine designs. His designs are very well made and this designer really knows how to work with different fabrics. As an auto-didactic he taught himself how to design. Amazing right?! His strength is the way he shapes his designs in a way that it accentuates the most beautiful parts of the feminine body. Kim Feenstra once told me in a short interview that in his designs you will feel sexy, powerful and feminine. My guess is that she right then told me nothing but the truth. The designs sure look like it!
As usual I loved the show from Tony Cohen! Ever since my first visit to Amsterdam Fashion Week, a little more than a year ago, the fashion show of Tony Cohen has been my highlight of fashion week. A must see.

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.
