Mercedes-Benz FashionWeek Amsterdam organized 10 Downtown events every day of the fashion week in 10 days at 10 locations.
The majority of the events were connected to cultural locations that are characteristic for Amsterdam. With 10 days Downtown Mercedes-Benz FashionWeek Amsterdam was focused on taking fashion from the catwalk to the sidewalk, highlighting the diamonds of the city Amsterdam and enlarging the awareness of fashion in The Netherlands.
This is how I end up on Friday night at the Van Gogh Museum seeing an amazing fashion event and creations of young Dutch talented Mattijs van Bergen,winner of the Dutch Fashion Award in 2012.
The creativity of Mattijs van Bergen was the link between the cultural gems of the capital and Mercedes-Benz FashionWeek Amsterdam.
He is an amazing Dutch designer who translates the Dutch paintings and art in to fashion in a very creative and innovative manner.
Here are some picture from Van Gogh Museum.
Mattijs van Bergen opened the 20th edition of Amsterdam Fashion Week with a colorful collection, silky orange skirts and the cherry blossom pattern .Here you can see pictures from the amazing big catwalk show for the autumn-winter collection named Complementair. It was breathtaking, amazing,colorful,dutch, luxurious,an optimistic play of colors, precious textile and beautiful models.
....the Dutch are very talented but also curious by nature :)
What do you think about Mattijs van Bergen and his collection ? Would you wear something from his collection ?Since I saw his collection I have beautiful dreams of me wearing all the blue dresses, also the red ones :)
