At the One Day Shop, organized by HTNK, I also spotted a new jewelry designer: Nadine Kieft. She designs very cute necklaces, with candyhearts in silver. Also, her jewelry are very French and baroc. I absolutely love it.

She uses a lot of pearls, roses and so called ‘hello boots’.

Take a look at her webshop, NadineKieft.com

This friday I was assisting the Dutch designer Mada van Gaans at a special one day shop filled with designers. I came across this designer called Sacha Lannoye, who’s designs caught my eye.

There were necklaces saying ‘blablabla’ or ‘yadayada’. My favorite thing was the pair of pumps that said ‘max 20 kg’.

I have a weakness. I tend to like some people without (really) knowing them. Like the colourful Anna Piaggi or the ‘Black Widow of Fashion’ Diane Pernet. I was lucky enough to have met Diane during London Fashion Week and she was fabulous.

On her weblog ‘ashadedviewonfashion.com’ she has interviewed the Dutch designer Iris van Herpen.

Iris van Herpen talks about her show in London, her collection Radiation, the materials she uses and her plans for the future.

This week was filled with museum visites. I also visited the Centraal Museum in Utrecht where the exhibition ‘Stof tot nadenken’ by Alexander van Slobbe was.

A complete exhibition about the Dutch designer Alexander van Slobbe and his label Orson + Bodil. You will see the vision of the designer, his minimalistic yet advanced designs and there is even room to make your own Alexander van Slobbe dress.

The exhibition starts with the fabrics that Alexander uses and the way he adapts the fabrics he uses. Halfway the exhibition, the room is filled with hanging mannequins wearing the minimalistic designs. On the floor you can see the patterns that are used for these designs.

The exhibition closes with an area where you can get behind the sewing-machine and make your own Alexander van Slobbe dress. The only thing you have to do is bring your own fabrics.

In the spotlight: The Freedom collection by Dutch designer Bas Kosters. ‘The Freedom collection consists of two parts. The first part tells a story about the freedom, fantasies and joy that people experience during their childhood. The second part illustrates the grown up view on a world where we try to forget about the wars, violence and crisis, by dressing up ourselves in glamorous outfits.’ as it says on the website of Bas. See for yourself!

During Amsterdam International Fashion Week there was a collection that caught my eye especially: Mada van Gaans. Her autumn winter ‘10/’11 collection is called The Serpent Goddess and is inspired by a snake goddess from Crete. Lots of snakeprints, woven in to the fabric and dark colours. One outfit was completely bubblegum pink, which gave the whole collection its freshness.

All in all a very feminine, sophisticated collection by Dutch designer Mada van Gaans.
