AFW: Nata Ryzh


Hi everyone!  

I still had some photo’s to share with you all from Amsterdam Fashion Week! This time from the show from Nata Ryzh. I personally really liked her collection! Loved the colors, patterns and designs she used in  her Shambala collection, inspired by the 60’s. Also the statement jewelry fitted really well with the looks. Make-up was very natural and the hairstyles curly and messy at the bottom.

In this post I will show the photo’s me and my boyfriend made and some of the photo’s the press photographers made at the show ( Later this or maybe next week I will share an Amsterdam Fashion Week recap with you all! 

(Maybe even including one of my first ever youtube video’s! ;)) 


PS: Which look was your favorite?! My favorite was the final piece, loved the colors, design and the hairpiece (see the last photo’s from this post)!


Good evening lovely followers,

How is everyone doing? I just got back from a short holiday break to lovely island Terschelling and I am so relaxed now! Time to blog! As you may know I visited the Amsterdam Fashion Week last week and I went to a couple of shows, three to be specific! Which means, I still have two more shows to share with you all! 

Are you ready for it?! 

This show, 2LOVE TONYCOHEN, was really my favorite show! I loved the colors, designs, fabrics, everything! Also I was seated second row so I have a lot of pretty pictures!!

By the way, if I should pick a favorite I think I would go with the green metallic / see-through outfit (pants + top). I love the colors, mix of different fabrics and the embroidery on the top!


Event: Daring Designers the Catwalk Edition

Hi all, 

Last week I have been to an informative event with fellow blogger Deniece from Kotton-Kandy! The event was about runway shows and everything that has to do with these shows!

The event was at Pakhuis de Zwijger, a nice building next to het IJ, the big ass river in Amsterdam. The location was nice and everything was very well organized.

As I said we where told (almost) everything that had to do with runway shows! Getting ready for the runwayshow and trying to make the runwayshow perfect is not only about fashion. You have to work with different disciplines to get the most out of the show! 

For example you will work with DJ’s or producers who will make a personalized tune for the runwayshow. And this actually is very, very important! The music in combination with the fashion, lights, environment makes or breaks the show. The music has to be just perfect, not to loud, not to wild, the music can not overrule the runway show, it has to represent the collection and let the collection come to life.

So, there has to be a match with the collection from the designer and the music, lights and the environment.

Some tips for designers to be: watch a lot of shows to get inspired, take your time, keep the collection and everything concerning the runwayshow in your own style and work with your guts. Said Joost van Bellen and Sander Stenger.

Claes Iversen told us to build the collection from the story you want to tell, and to communicatie very well with the team you are working with. Communication is all y’all. 

Kim Vos and Max Hitipeuw talked about the models, catwalk training and the choreo for the show. Individuals creative manager Peter Lefereing told us about how the collections from the students are produced, how the project for the students goes, and how they come up with a theme for the collection. For example the collection Jewels which was kind of dark and about the emotion the students felt. 

Concerning catwalk and fashion photography, one of the items I was the most interested in, Peter Stigter told us that the photographer always has to have a good moment. I think this can be really a challenge if I recall my own runway photography skills at Mode Feestje last two months ago haha. Peter stigter also told us about the difference between streetstyle photography (very international, trends, special or outstanding outfits) and frontrow photography. He also mentioned celebs as the face behind a collection, publicity for designers and brands and that runwayshows are actually just a way of marketing.
